In this article, we describe a newborn with Prune belly syndrome who presented with left ventricular dilation due to an extensive intralobar sequestration of the left lung. Pulmonary sequestration was combined with congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation and also had coarctation of the aorta. Percutaneous closure of the anomalous aberrant artery feeding the sequestrated lung and balloon angioplasty for coarctation resulted in prompt regression of the left ventricular enlargement in the catheterization lab.
