Two patients had a right lower lobe sequestration and one patient had a left lower lobe sequestration.
Pulmonary sequestration was first described by Rektorzik in 1861, as a nonfunctioning mass of lung tissue which lacks normal communication with the tracheobronchial tree and with an anomalous systemic arterial supply.
lobectomy A CT arteriogram showed a single aberrant artery arising from the anterior right lateral aspect of the thoracic aorta at the level of T10 supplying the right lower lobe pulmonary sequestration Patient 3 Chest X-ray--a vague Left lower Figure 3, opacity in the lower lobe lobectomy.

Pulmonary sequestration (PS) is defined as a congenital malformation consisting of aberrant lung tissue mass that does not have a normal connection with the tracheobronchial tree and has a systemic arterial blood supply.
Abstract: Pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital or acquired pulmonary anomaly.

4) Sequestrations have been documented to harbor squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma, tubercular infection, and various fungal infections.
Pathologic Diagnosis: Intralobar Bronchopulmonary Sequestration
discussed the long-term consequences of sequestration
and the significant contributions federal employees have made toward deficit reduction.
The destructive across-the-board cuts required by the sequestration are not a substitute for a responsible deficit reduction plan.
The sequestration cuts have played a prominent role in the Virginia Senate race, with Republican candidate George Allen has taking aim at the planned cutbacks.
