A 47-year-old woman presented with hemoptysis and her chest X-ray films showed an opacity suggesting a mass in the left lower lung field. Based on radiographic investigations, the mass was diagnosed as an aneurysm develop in an anomalous vessel and was considered to be a Pryce type I pulmonary intralobar sequestration. Resection of the left lower lobes was performed and the aneurysm was found to be filled with thrombus. It is rare for an aneurysm to form in an aberrant vessel. This complication may have been the result of regional sclerosis affecting the anomalous artery as well as systemic atherosclerosis.
