The authors report on a newborn boy with extralobar pulmonary sequestration in the right upper thoracic region. Preoperative angiography showed an anomalous large vessel from the right subclavian artery, supplying the sequestrated lobe. Right thoracotomy was performed to resect the sequestrated lobe, which was diagnosed as extralobar form. This is an extremely rare case of extralobar pulmonary sequestration in which anomalous blood supply from the subclavian artery was seen preoperatively on radiographs. The authors recommend angiographic examination, particularly in case of diagnostic difficulty.
