Mass Effect of Pulmonary Sequestration: Multiloculated–Multiseptated Pneumomediastinum
Keywords:Pneumomediastinum, Pulmonary sequestration, Neonate, Respiratory distress
Pulmonary sequestration (PS) and pneumomediastinum are two rare clinical diseases. Pneumomediastinum was generally observed in infants either with diseased lungs or who were performed assisted ventilation or resuscitation following birth. It was reported in patients with existing ectopic thoracic kidney and laryngeal cysts however, no coexisting congenital lung anomalies were reported. Here, we report the pneumomediastinum occurred due the extralobar PS because of the mass effect of the lesion.
