PMID:  15088114     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The current report describes the case of a 13-year-old girl with an extralobar pulmonary sequestration who presented with chest and back pains without evidence of infection. Her symptoms were discovered to be secondary to torsion and infarction of the pulmonary sequestration. Although pulmonary sequestration is not an uncommon differential diagnosis for chest masses, it is rare for it to present in this manner.
