Abstract

Retroperitoneal pulmonary sequestration is an extremely rare congenital malformation. It is more frequently diagnosed in the antenatal period due to routine ultrasonic examinations that are conducted for a fetus or during the first 6 months of life, although retroperitoneal pulmonary sequestration is incidentally discovered in adults on rare occasions. Because the location and radiological findings of retroperitoneal pulmonary sequestration are very similar to those of another retroperitoneal masses, retroperitoneal pulmonary sequestration, although they are very rare, should be included in the differential diagnosis of a retroperitoneal suprarenal mass. Although fine needle aspiration may be considered as an aid for making the preoperative diagnosis, surgery remains the treatment of choice for symptomatic lesions and this surgery is associated with excellent results and a good prognosis.
