Pulmonary sequestration (PS) is a rare anomaly. PS is a mass of abnormal pulmonary tissue that does not communicate with the tracheobronchial tree and is supplied by an anomalous systemic artery. Although aberrant systemic arterial supply is considered the key element to diagnose PS, rarely it can have arterial supply from the pulmonary artery as a spectrum of sequestration. Here, we present an unusual case of double (upper and lower) extralobar sequestration, present unilaterally (left haemithorax) in a neonate, without anomalous blood supply (supply from the left pulmonary artery and drainage into the superior and inferior pulmonary veins), not reported in literature earlier, to the best of our knowledge. In the present case, a child presented with respiratory discomfort at birth, requiring surgery due to inability to wean off respiratory support. It is important to be aware of this variant of sequestration spectrum. In a 18 days old child, both pulmonary sequestrations were resected thoracoscopically, making it a rare case, not described earlier in literature.
