A 72-year-old woman had been suffering from recurrent left lower back pain and pneumonia for more than 10 years. She was diagnosed with intralobar type of BPS by computed- tomography angiogram and underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy. BPS is a rare congenital abnormality that can accompany repeated pulmonary infection. Although asymptomatic patients may consider lifelong observation, surgical treatment of patients with symptoms is a curative option with minimal morbidity. To improve quality of the life for patients, active surgical treatment should be considered.</p> 2019-09-09T12:03:37+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
