Abstract

Aberrant systemic arteries supplying the intralobar pulmonary sequestration can become dilated and have atherosclerotic change. Computed tomography is very useful in demonstrating the aberrant artery. We report a case of intralobar pulmonary sequestration with giant branching aneurysmal aberrant artery, and demonstrated the discontinuity of the bronchus by 64-slice computed tomography, which has not previously been described.
