Pseudo pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital anomaly, which entails systemic arterial supply to the basal segment of the lung in the absence of pulmonary arterial supply. Diagnosis is often made by radiographic appearance without specific clinical symptoms. The mainstay treatment is surgical resection; however, embolization can be considered as an alternative approach. Herein, we present a report of two females who presented with nonspecific chronic chest pain. Both patients were diagnosed with pseudo pulmonary sequestration on CT scan and completed uneventful pregnancies prior to successful management with coil embolization.
