CEPERO ROSALES, Bárbara; MORI ESTEVEZ, Ana Dolores  e  ROCA CAMPANA, Víctor. Intralobar pulmonary sequestration in adult older than 50. Rev cubana med [online]. 2014, vol.53, n.1, pp.97-103. ISSN 0034-7523.

Pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital pulmonary malformation. Intralobar sequestrations account for 75% of all pulmonary sequestrations. Patients usually present it before the age of 20. A 59 years old female patient with a history of recurrent lower respiratory infections is reported here. In her chest imaging studies, irregular margins opacity was evident in her left hemithorax. She underwent surgery for suspected lung cancer. Diagnosis of intralobar sequestration was made after histopathological examination of the resected lung.

Palavras-chave : pulmonary sequestration; intralobar sequestration; recurrent pulmonary infection.
