Bronchopulmonary sequestration is a congenital malformation characterized by a cystic portion of the lung that derives its arterial blood supply through anomalous aberrant vessel directly of the systemic circulation. An aberrant systemic vessel supplying the lung was reported by Huber in 1777. Although this lesion is uncommon disorder, there are several reports on operative death caused by exanguinating hemorrhage from the aberrant arteries to the bronchopulmonary sequestration to that it has received a great deal of attention. Two type of bronchopulmonary sequestration have been identified: Intralobar pulmonary sequestration is usually contained within the visceral pleura of a pulmonary lobe and its venous drainage to the pulmonary venous system. Extrapulmonary sequestration is usually within the pleural sheath its own and its vasculature drains into the azygos or hemiazygos system. we presented one case of intralobar pulmonary sequestration which led to motor paralysis, chylothorax and hemorrhage that are consequent on postoperative complication.
