We describe a rare case of bilateral intralobar pulmonary sequestration in a newborn with both sequestrations vascularized from a vessel arising from the celiac trunk of the abdominal aorta. The larger sequestration on the right side was diagnosed antenatally, the left side postnatally. At the age of 7 months, the child underwent successful bilateral thoracotomy. In follow-up at the age of more than 1 year, no complications have occurred. © 2007 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
