Extralobar pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital disease of the primitive foregut. This case report describes an adult with asymptomatic extralobar sequestration who was successfully treated with the video-assisted thoracic surgery. We performed a superior segment-preserving lower lobectomy and complete resection of the sequestered mass due to the atypical incomplete fissure. This approach allowed a patient to recover uneventfully to preserve pulmonary function and it provides patient satisfaction by causing less postoperative pain.


KEY WORDS: Lung; Bronchopulmonary sequestration; Thoracic surgery, video-assisted
