Bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS) is a rare congenital disorder of the lung. It consists of a nonfunctioning lung tissue that is not normally connected with the tracheobronchial tree and receives its blood supply from systemic circulation. The presentation of sequestration is variable, ranging from asymptomatic to more severe symptoms such as massive hemoptysis, resulting in increased mortality and morbidity. Although BPS commonly involves left lower airway, here we report the case of a 17-year-old female who presented with recurrent hemoptysis and was eventually diagnosed with pulmonary sequestration in the right lower lobe, an unusual presentation of intralobar sequestration.
