Abstract

PURPOSE: Anatomical variations of pulmonary veins, even though not rare, have important role, especially in patients undergoing lung surgery. We present a case of a single common pulmonary venous drainage of the left upper and lower lobe of the lung.METHOD/RESULT: The common trunk of the left superior and inferior pulmonary vein was misidentified as an inferior pulmonary vein, and it was transected during surgery.CONCLUSION: The surgeon must always be aware of this anomaly and carefully verify the normal anatomical structures before dividing them while performing an upper or lower lobectomy.
