Intrathoracic hybrid lesion: An incidental finding in a patient with PHACE syndrome

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Hybrid lesions (HLs) are unique, congenital lung malformations with both cystic and solid components and vascular supply consistent with bronchopulmonary sequestration. Increase of HLs reported in recent literature suggest a common pathological mechanism occurring during embryogenesis, leading to occurrence of both malformations within a single lesion. Due to the unusual nature of HLs, gold standard approach for diagnosis is not very well-defined in the literature. We report a novel case of a 3-year-old girl with posterior fossa anomalies-haemangioma-arterial lesions-coarctation of the aorta-eye anomalies syndrome, who was found, on CT angiography, to have a previously missed HL diagnosis which was confirmed after surgical resection.
