We report a rare case of a 38-year-old woman with a bronchial carcinoid tumor arising from an intralobar bronchopulmonary sequestration. The vascular supply to the sequestered left lower lobe originated from the descending thoracic aorta. A left lower lobe lobectomy was performed. The findings of the pathological examination revealed an atypical carcinoid tumor that was immunopositive for chromogranin and synaptophysin. At the 3-year follow-up examination, the patient was healthy. © The Korean Society for Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery. 2011.
