We report a rare form of bilateral pulmonary sequestration (PS) that was directly connected to the gastroesophageal junction with a well-formed aberrant bronchus-like structure. An upper gastrointestinal contrast series was performed directly after birth, and a unique PS bronchogram was identified, along with duodenal atresia. The PS was successfully resected and the duodenal atresia was corrected.
