Acinetobacter baumannii infection is common among inpatients and is a major cause of hospital-acquired or ventilator-associated pneumonia. It is rare for this pathogen to cause community-acquired pneumonia. Eighty percent of the patients with community-acquired Acinetobacter present with lobar consolidation. Bronchopulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital disorder with incidence of 1 in 10,000–35,000 live births. Intralobar sequestration is more common than extralobar. Affected individual generally presents with respiratory distress at an early age. Late manifestation with the lower respiratory tract infection has also been reported. We report an interesting case of subsegmental consolidation masquerading as extralobar sequestration of the lung in an adult who presented with pyrexia of unknown origin.
