Surgical treatment of infected intralobar pulmonary sequestration: a collective review of patients older than 50 years reported in the literature.
Pulmonary sequestration (PS) was first described by Rektorzik in 1861 and reported incidence is 0.15% - 6.4% of all congenital pulmonary malformations.4 Embryologically, different theories have been proposed regarding its development.
The differential diagnosis includes pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB), pulmonary sequestration, congenital lobar emphysema, diaphragmatic hernia, bronchogenic cyst and cystic bronchiectasis.
In children, etiology of cystic lesions differs from that in adults, with congenital lesions being more prominent.2 Congenital lesions, also known as bronchopulmonary foregut malformations, include the discrete entities of pulmonary sequestration, congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM), congenital lobar emphysema, and bronchogenic pulmonary cysts.
These are also known as bronchopulmonary foregut malformations, comprising congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM), congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM), congenital lobar emphysema (CLE), broncho pulmonary sequestrations (BPS) and bronchogenic c ysts.
