Intralobar pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital lung anomaly. It is defined as a portion of nonfunctioning lung parenchyma that receives its blood supply from an anomalous systemic artery. Patients often present with chronic or recurrent pneumonia. A chest radiograph may show a cystic lesion with air-fluid levels in the lung base. A high index of suspicion is needed for a diagnosis. Surgical removal of a symptomatic intralobar pulmonary sequestration is generally the treatment of choice. Identifying the aberrant artery is a difficult problem when resecting a pulmonary sequestration. The thoracic and abdominal aortas are the most common origins for the abnormal blood supply. However, arterial supply from the celiac artery is quite rare. We present a case of intralobar pulmonary sequestration with the blood supply originating from the celiac artery. Copyright
