Pulmonary sequestration with right coronary artery supply

Yonsei Med J. 2008 Jun 30;49(3):507-8. doi: 10.3349/ymj.2008.49.3.507.


Pulmonary sequestration is an unusual malformation consisting of isolated nonfunctioning lung segments lacking communication with functional tracheobronchial trees. Systemic blood supply is commonly from the thoracic aorta, but arteries occasionally arise from other sites. We report a rare form of pulmonary sequestration with arterial supply from the right coronary artery.
