Statistics from Altmetric.com
A 61-year-old man with recurrent episodes of haemoptysis and pneumonia underwent chest CT scan showing an intralobar sequestration in the right lower lobe (figure 1); at the multiplane CT reconstruction, the artery supplying the sequestration arose from the left gastric artery (figure 2). The patient underwent right lower lobectomy with closure of the aberrant arterial vessel by mechanical stapler. The postoperative course was uneventful, and the patient was discharged on the fifth postoperative day. The arterial supply arising from left gastric artery is a rare condition;1 in our knowledge, this is the first adult2 case supplying a right intralobar sequestration.
