Abstract

Intralobar pulmonary sequestration most often manifests with recurrent bacterial infections and fungal infections are rare. We report an unusual case of intralobar pulmonary sequestration with aspergilloma in a 49-year-old woman who presented with chronic cough and intermittent haemoptysis. The diagnosis of intralobar pulmonary sequestration was established by the multidetector computed tomographic angiography and the pathologic appearances of sequestrated lung tissue. The aspergilloma was detected postoperatively through histological examination of the resected lung tissue. Aspergilloma may occur as a superadded infection in any case of intralobar pulmonary sequestration presenting with chronic cough and recurrent bacterial infections.
