Abstract

Pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital malformation of the lower respiratory tract characterized by a non-functioning mass of lung tissue that is not communicating with the normal tracheo-bronchial tree and receives its vascular supply from a systemic artery. We report the first case of intrapulmonary sequestration in Qatar, of a 22 year-old Qatari male who presented with recurrent chest infection. This case study includes a literature review.
