Abstract

Two cases of right-sided bronchus anomalies are described. These represent two groups, stated in the literature to be the commonest anomalies, viz. displaced apical bronchus and bronchus cardiacus superior. The first case was combined with an epidermoid carcinoma localized to the displaced apical bronchus and was found during surgery. In the second case, the anomaly was diagnosed by bronchoscopy and verified by thoracotomy with bilobectomy for adenocarcinoma. Anomalies of these types should be borne in mind in the bronchoscopic assessment of the operability and treatment of benign and malignant pulmonary disease.
