Bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS) is a lung mass that does not communicate with the tracheobronchial tree or the pulmonary arterial vasculature, and thus does not play a role in oxygenation. This article discusses the etiology of BPS, as well as its pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, imaging studies used to diagnose, and treatment options in both pediatric and adult patients.

Intralobar pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital malformation characterized by the presence of dysplastic lung that does not communicate with the tracheobronchial tree, and has aberrant systemic arterial supply. While most are asymptomatic, they rarely can present with hemoptysis, which has been traditionally managed with surgical resection of the sequestration. We report a case of an 18-year-old male who presented with acute large-volume hemoptysis on a background of recurrent minor episodes of hemoptysis, due to intralobar sequestration...

Pulmonary sequestration (PS) happens when an area of the lung receives its arterial blood supply from systemic circulation, resulting in a non-functional lesion (Intralobar or extralobar). Hydatid cyst results from infection of the tapeworm Echinococcus. We report a case of hydatid cyst existed concurrently with intralobar PS. A 12-year-old girl presented with recurrent hemoptysis of 2 years duration. Serology for Echinococcus granulosus was positive. CT chest suggested intralobar PS in the right middle lobe, which was surgically removed...

Hybrid lesions (HLs) have elements of congenital pulmonary airway malformation and extrapulmonary sequestration (EPS) and belong to the congenital lung lesions. EPS usually arises in the thorax or the abdomen but rarely in the diaphragm. The preoperative diagnostic work-up based on chest radiograph, ultrasound (US) and CT often shows imprecise results. Therefore, the exact localisation of the lesion can only be ascertained intraoperatively. Here we present a patient, with an intradiaphragmatic HL, and demonstrate the difficulties of surgical decision making regarding the localisation of the lesion and discuss the value of minimal invasive surgery...

Pulmonary sequestration (SP), is a rare condition, which requires a high index of suspicion for appropriate diagnosis. Clinical manifestations usually simulate banal respiratory diseases, so the diagnosis always tends to be delayed. Surgical treatment by video-assisted, thoracic surgery is a safe option for the management of pulmonary sequestration. The extensive evaluation of the images and knowledge of certain anatomical details are necessary to prevent accidents during surgery. Surgery at an early age helps surgical resection with fewer complications...

INTRODUCTION: An anomalous systemic arterial supply to the normal basal segment without sequestration is a rare congenital vascular malformation. The discovery age is relatively young, and the most common clinical symptom is hemoptysis due to pulmonary hypertension or heart failure. We herein describe a case of endovascular embolization of in an elderly and asymptomatic patient with an anomalous systemic arterial supply to the normal basal segment. PRESENTAITION OF CASE: An 80-year-old male was referred to our hospital due to an abnormal chest shadow...

Extralobar sequestrations constitute a rare form of congenital pulmonary airway malformations that are difficult to diagnose. Here, we report a rare case of a localized extralobar sequestration in the right superior portion of the mediastinum accompanied by congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation.A 19-year-old man presented with a right upper mediastinal mass that was detected using chest radiography, had a history of left spontaneous pneumothorax, and had undergone a bullectomy 4 years previously.The initial diagnosis included a mature teratoma and a bronchogenic cyst in the mediastinum; however, the presence of a cystic mass in the right upper lobe of the lung prompted further examination...

INTRODUCTION: Isolated chest wall tuberculosis though a rare entity, the incidence of it has been on rise among immunocompromised population making it an important challenging diagnosis for the physicians. Its clinical presentation may resemble pyogenic chest wall abscess or chest wall soft tissue tumour. Sometimes it is difficult to detect clinically or on plain radiograph. AIM: The present study was conducted with an aim to evaluate the common sites and varying appearances of isolated chest wall tuberculosis...

BACKGROUND: Lung xenografts remain susceptible to loss of vascular barrier function within hours in spite of significant incremental advances based on genetic engineering to remove the Gal 1,3-αGal antigen (GalTKO) and express human membrane cofactor protein (hCD46). Natural killer cells rapidly disappear from the blood during perfusion of GalTKO.hCD46 porcine lungs with human blood and presumably are sequestered within the lung vasculature. Here we asked whether porcine expression of the human NK cell inhibitory ligand HLA-E and β2 microglobulin inhibits GalTKO...

Pulmonary sequestrations are non-functional masses of lung tissue lacking normal communication with the tracheobronchial tree and systemic-circulation-derived blood supply. The disconnection between the normal airway and pulmonary arterial supply prevents pulmonary sequestrations from participating in respiration while their aberrant circulation increases the potential for hemodynamic imbalance. Extralobar sequestrations are prenatally diagnosed, congenital lesions that may become symptomatic before or after birth, whereas intralobar sequestrations are usually identified during adulthood...

In the reported scenario, the patient known for a history of operated Bochdalek hernia or congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) presented with new abdominal pain. The CT-scan suspected the presence of pancreas herniation through a recurrent CDH. Intraoperatively, the patient was found to have a recurrent CDH containing greater omentum concomitantly with a pulmonary sequestration (PS). This case report highlights the fact that intraoperative findings can be different from preoperative radiological diagnosis...

Pulmonary congenital abnormalities are rare disorders including congenital pulmonary airway malformations (CPAM) and pulmonary sequestration (PS). CPAM is a lesion characterized by the presence of anomalous bronchiolar or acinar structures, variable in size, either cystic or not cystic. PS is generally defined as nonfunctioning lung tissue that is not in normal continuity with the tracheobronchial tree and that derives its blood supply from systemic vessels. We describe a case of a baby girl with a very rare association between CPAM type 2 and intralobar pulmonary sequestration (IPS) focusing on the cystic lesions typical of CPAM and on the lymphatic and blood vessels...

It is now well established that both inherited and acquired forms of hemolytic disease can promote pulmonary vascular disease consequent of free hemoglobin (Hb) induced NO scavenging, elevations in reactive oxygen species and lipid peroxidation. It has recently been reported that oxidative stress can activate NFkB through a toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) mediated pathway; further, TLR9 can be activated by either nuclear or mitochondrial DNA liberated by stress induced cellular trauma. We hypothesis that Hb induced lipid peroxidation and subsequent endothelial cell trauma is linked to TLR9 activation, resulting in IL-6 mediated pulmonary smooth muscle cell proliferation...
