Mentions: A computed tomography of the abdomen and pelvis was ordered with intravenous contrast to rule out pyelonephritis and infected renal calculus. It revealed Figure 1, which shows an inflamed pulmonary sequestration in the posteromedial left lung base, with a surrounding pleural effusion. An independent arterial blood supply branching off of the descending thoracic aorta was later confirmed with angiography, shown in Figure 2, which further revealed infarction secondary to torsion.
