Fatal massive hemoptysis secondary to intralobar sequestration

, : Fatal massive hemoptysis secondary to intralobar sequestration. Chest 106(3): 954-955

We report the case of a 29-year-old woman who died of massive hemoptysis due to hemorrhage from an intralobar pulmonary sequestration into the tracheobronchial tree. The sequestration had been diagnosed in childhood but had been managed nonoperatively. This case emphasizes the need for early surgical treatment of pulmonary sequestration.
