INTRODUCTION: Bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS), a congenital anomaly, is isolated lung tissue receiving arterial blood from systemic vasculature which does not communicate with the tracheobronchial tree (1). Intralobar sequestration (ILS) lacks its own visceral pleura while extralobar sequestration (ELS) retains its own visceral pleura and venous drainage. We describe a case of pneumonia with an infected ILS.
