Extralobar pulmonary sequestration (EPS) is a rare developmental anomaly with aberrant nonfunctioning parenchymal tissue, associated with an increased risk of perinatal morbidity and, rarely, mortality owing to possible neonatal respiratory distress. In most cases supernumerary lobes are detected as isolated intra- or extrapleural lesions with independent systemic arterial blood supply. We report an atypical case of prenatal detection and perinatal outcome of a mediastinal EPS.
