Complex pulmonary vascular blood supply is common in patients with tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, major systemic to pulmonary collateral arteries and hypoplastic or deficient central pulmonary arteries. An extralobar lung sequestration, which has not been described previously in these patients, was imaged in a 6-week-old infant with multidetector computed tomography with sub-millimeter resolution. Arterial and venous vessels were analyzed using three-dimensional vascular exploration tools and results were confirmed with cardiac catheterization.
