There are many pseudogenes with introns, in addition to the special
category of "processed pseudogenes".  Among immunoglobulin genes you
can look at the human epsilon constant region gene (the one in the
heavy chain complex, as opposed to the intronless copy elsewhere in
the genome), and non-functional lambda chain constant region genes in
both rats and mice.
