Case

A 3-year-old girl was referred to radiology clinic with complaints of cough, fever (38, 5°C), sputum production, and respiratory distress. It was learned that the patient was previously followed up in the hospital due to recurrent respiratory tract infections. Physical examination of the patient revealed a decrease in respiratory sounds in the lower parts of the left lung during auscultation. Significant laboratory tests result: White blood cell count 16,350/μL, C-reactive protein 9, 8 mg/L. Ultrasonography (US) and a computed tomography (CT) was performed. On US a hyperechogenic, well-circumscribed mass, with cystic areas was detected in the basal part of the left lung [Figure 1]. On color Doppler US a branch extending from the thoracic aorta to the lesion was seen [Figure 2]. On CT images, branches of the thoracic aorta and the pulmonary vein extending toward the lesion were detected [Figure 3] and [Figure 4].{Figure 1}{Figure 3}{Figure 3}{Figure 4}
