A case of extralobar pulmonary sequestration associated with congental pulmonary valve stenosis is reported in this article. Extralobar pulmonary sequestration is a type of congenital pulmonary developmental malformation defined as an isolated cystic solid mass with unbroken and separate pleural investment and a systemic arterial supply, and no communication with the normal bronchial tree. After diagnosis was confirmed with CT angiography operation was performed under extracorporeal circulation. At surgery patent oval foramen was found and pulmonary valve was stenotic with malformation of four valve leaflets and a mass in left thoracic cavity was confirmed to be pulmonary sequestration through pathologic examination. Surgical effect was satisfied and the patient recovered well. No abnormalities was found at followup after 12 months. It is important for infant with congenital heart disease to take CT angiography check and surgical treatment remains the preferred method for extralobar pulmonary sequestration associated with severe pulmonary valve stenosis.
