Bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS) is usually a rare congenital anomaly, which is most frequently extralobar or intralobar. The case of a patient with positional congenital anomaly--dextrocardia (situs thoracalis inversus) and intrapulmonary sequestration (IPS) is presented. Clinical and radiological characteristics of EPS and IPS are discussed, and new combinations of congenital anomalies with bronchopulmonary sequestration are described, dextrocardia and intrapulmonary sequestration. The importance of the algorithm of diagnostic examinations is emphasized, from detection of bronchopulmonary sequestration on the chest roentgenogram to establishing a definite diagnosis by means of angiography.
