A 58-year-old female with a history of recurrent pneumonia was evaluated for fevers, right lower back pain, and hematuria. A noncontrast abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan showed air and fluid-filled area in the right lower lobe for which a contrast-enhanced CT chest was performed. The CT of the chest revealed the cystic mass was supplied by an anomalous artery from the descending aorta. The patient was then diagnosed with a superinfected bronchopulmonary sequestration which was treated with surgical resection.
