The article focuses on the clinical image of the chest of a 17-year-old boy with hemoptysis. It says that the image obtained through computed tomography revealed a well-circumscribed hyperlucent area in the left basal lung. It mentions the case of the boy with hemoptysis, who was diagnosed with cystic form of pulmonary sequestration. It also presents a reconstructed computed tomographic image of two feeding arteries from the aorta.
