Abstract
Pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital mass of nonfunctional pulmonary tissue that lacks a normal-connection with the bronchial tree or the pulmonary arteries. It is clinically asymptomatic but when it is complicated with recurrent infection, it needs to be treated. Conventionally, surgical removal was recommended, but these days we are trying new and less invasive techniques, such as arterial embolization. There were several reports about successful cases of pulmonary sequestration treated by embolization, but mostly all of them were done to newborns or infants. We report a case of a 15-year-old boy with an asymptomatic pulmonary sequestration on whom was performed coil embolization, and in the follow-up computed tomography(CT), the size of the lesion was decreased. He did not suffer severe respiratory symptoms.
