Pryce’s type I pulmonary intralobar sequestration presenting with massive hemoptysis

Academic Article


  • Pryce's type I intralobar sequestration, in which a region of lung exhibits tracheobronchial continuity and aberrant systemic arterial supply, is most frequently asymptomatic and discovered incidentally. While hemoptysis may be a common presenting symptom, massive hemoptysis is rarely seen. We document a case of a 58-year-old man, previously asymptomatic, whose initial presentation was that of massive hemoptysis. The radiographic, intraoperative and pathologic findings in our patient confirm that his sequestration was of Pryce's type I. ©2001 by W.B. Saunders Company.
