Pulmonary sequestration is a relatively rare condition in which a systemic artery supplies blood to an abnormal lung tissue. Pulmonary sequestration with an aneurysmal systemic artery is extremely rare. We describe the case of a 52-year-old man with intralobar pulmonary sequestration supplied by an aneurysmal systemic artery. Because the nomenclature of pulmonary sequestration is still not clear, we propose that type 1 intralobar pulmonary sequestration be called "systemic arterial supply to the normal lung," as named by many professionals, and for this to be distinguished from pulmonary sequestration.
