Pulmonary sequestration is a congenital lung malformation, defined by dysplastic and non-functioning lung tissue lacking normal tracheobronchial connections and accompanied by an anomalous systemic blood supply. Recognition of anomalous arteries and veins in pulmonary sequestration is paramount to making the correct diagnosis. In contrast to intralobar pulmonary sequestration, where anomalous venous drainage is usually into the pulmonary venous system, the pattern of anomalous venous drainage is more varied in extralobar pulmonary sequestration. To the best of our knowledge, anomalous venous drainage to the internal mammary vein in extralobar sequestrations has not been reported. We report an anomalous venous drainage into the internal mammary vein in an extralobar sequestration which was evaluated with 3D multidetector CT angiography.
