Bilateral pulmonary sequestration (PS) is a very rare congenital malformation. We describe a case of bilateral intralobar pulmonary sequestration (ILS) in a newborn. Both sequestrations received arterial supply from separate branches of the descending aorta and venous drainage was into ipsilateral inferior pulmonary veins. Prenatal ultrasonography showed cystic changes in the lungs. Computed tomography angiography (CTA) with supplemental two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) images was performed to clearly define the pathology and revealed bilateral intralobar pulmonary sequestration with aberrant blood supply. The child underwent successful video-assisted thoracoscopic surgical (VATS) lobectomy on the left side and thoracoscopic wedge resection on the right side. There were no complications. CTA with supplemental 2D and 3D images plays a vital role in revealing the exact pathology in congenital pulmonary malformations associated with anomalous vasculature.
