Pulmonary sequestration (PS) is a rare congenital lung malformation. We present a case of newborn with antenatally diagnosed case of PS. The baby was delivered by cesarean section to primigravida mother at 38 + 3 weeks of gestation with birth weight of 2700 g. At 20 weeks of gestation, the antenatal ultrasound showed a triangular echogenic area in left lung supplied by feeding artery from descending aorta. The baby had respiratory distress soon after birth. Computerized tomographic pulmonary angiogram revealed abnormal blood supply of left lower lobe arising from descending aorta. The feeding vessel was abnormally large and was almost half of the diameter of the aorta. The baby underwent left lower lobectomy with double ligation of feeding artery at day 7 of life and was discharged on day 14 of life. Antenatal diagnosis of congenital lung malformation helps in careful planning of perinatal care and facilitates the early diagnosis and management.
