Abstract

The case of a patient admitted to the hospital for symptoms characterized by chest pain, productive cough, fever, dyspnea resistant to antibiotic therapy is discussed. Previous plain chest X-ray performed elsewhere was suggestive of inflammotory lung consolidation. An admission chest X-ray revealed a left lower lobe density. On chest CT-angiography a lobulated mass in the posterior basal segment of the left lower lobe was visualized: the diagnosis of intralobar pulmonary sequestration (ILPS) was hypothesized.
