A 42-year-old man was diagnosed with cancer of the right lower lung lobe with a posteparterial type of tracheal bronchus, in which the posterior segmental bronchus of the right upper lobe arose from the distal bronchus intermedius. A mass involved the distal bronchus intermedius, requiring a right lower bilobectomy with an additional posterior segmental resection of the right upper lung lobe. Thus, we performed a right lower bilobectomy and sleeve anastomosis of the posterior segmental bronchus of the right upper lobe to the proximal bronchus intermedius, sparing the pulmonary parenchyma of the same lobe.
