Anatomical variations in the pulmonary vessels present a potential risk for intraoperative bleeding and damage to the pulmonary circulation during pulmonary resection. Here, we present a patient who underwent left upper lobectomy for lung cancer. The patient had a dangerous mediastinal basal pulmonary artery variation that could be mistaken for the mediastinal lingular pulmonary artery and be divided during left upper lobectomy. Keywords: Anatomical variation; Left upper lobectomy; Pulmonary artery.
