A rare case of a patient with progressive dyspnoea due to atrial compression between ascending and descending aorta is demonstrated. After neoadjuvant chemoradiation for a locally advanced nonsmall cell lung cancer stage IIIb, he had a left-sided pneumonectomy. The underlying problem for cardiac compression was the extreme mediastinal shift reinforced by a congenital pectus excavatum. Our treatment was a Ravitch procedure with fair result.
