The Teaching Point

In patients with chronic or recurrent pulmonary consolidation, the diagnosis of BPS needs to be considered as a possibility, regardless of the patient`s age. On imaging, an abnormal branch most commonly originating from the descending aorta and supplying the sequestration is the hallmark of this entity. CTA with multiplanar reformatting, MIP and VRT techniques are essential for the diagnosis and pre-surgical planning of BPS.

Abstract
We report a case of bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS) in a 60 year old man with recurrent cough. After failed antibiotic therapy for presumed left lower lobe (LLL) pneumonia seen on chest radiographs, bronchoscopy was performed revealing cryptogenic organizing pneumonia. Further work-up with thoracic imaging demonstrates a feeding artery from the thoracic aorta to the LLL consolidation indicating the presence of BPS. A brief review of the clinical and radiological features and management options of BPS are listed, with particular emphasis on the various imaging modalities and techniques in the diagnosis and pre-surgical planning of intralobar sequestration.
