A 37-year-old man presented with shortness of breath and productive cough that started 1 week previously. The patient reported having recurrent pulmonary infection since adolescence. A computed tomographic angiograph showed left lower lobe dysplasia with large cystic areas and air-fluid level (image A, arrow). A supplying vessel from the aorta was found (image B, arrow), with venous drainage to the pulmonary vein. The patient was admitted to the hospital and given intravenous ceftriaxone (2 g) and intravenous azithromycin (500 mg every 24 hours), and he subsequently underwent segmentectomy. The patient had an unremarkable recovery without recurrence of pulmonary infection.
