Torsion of pulmonary extralobar sequestration is extremely rare in childhood and adolescence, and as it presents with a variety of symptoms ranging from intermittent pain to fever from infarction, differential diagnosis is necessary. Herein, we report a rare case of 13-year-old girl who presented with abdominal pain and fever was diagnosed as infarction of torsed extralobar pulmonary sequestration. Torsed extralobar pulmonary sequestration was removed by thoracoscopic surgery, and the patient remained in good clinical condition.
