A Rare Cause of Hemoptysis "Anomalous Systemic Artery To a Lung".
Pak J Chest Med Jan ;22(4):165-7.
Bronchopulmonary sequestration represents a wide spectrum of common and rare abnormalities. An aberrant systemic arterial supply to a normal lung with or without bronchial sequestration is one of these. Pryce classified these abnormal lesions. Most of these patients are asymptomatic but as time passes, many patients develop hemoptysis, localized pulmonary hypertension, and eventually high output cardiac failure. For diagnosis and planning of definitive treatment, Multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) plays an important role in identifying the origin and course of the aberrant artery. Definitive treatment can be endovascular (coiling or ligation) or surgical (lobectomy or segmentectomy).
