Pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital anomaly of the lung that has variable presentation. It can remain asymptomatic up to early adulthood. This condition is suspected when a shadow persists on a chest radiograph. Confirmatory diagnosis requires angiography or computed tomography (CT) angiogram. Treatment of choice remains surgical removal; however, embolisation of the feeder artery presents a recent advance. We present a case of a 4-month-old infant, with pulmonary sequestration found on a radiograph done incidentally.
