These are the ultrasound scans of a fetus at 30 weeks of gestation. A right sided echogenic intrathoracic mass was noted which was an extralobar lung sequestration. This baby was operated upon after normal delivery, and is currently doing well.

 

This is a video clip showing the right sequestered lung.
