Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis is a life-threatening infectious complication. The optimal management is still controversial, especially in cases of upper lobe lesions involving vascular structures. We report the case of a 24-year-old man with a granulocytic sarcoma of the left pulmonary apex, complicated by invasive pulmonary aspergillosis and false aneurysm of the left subclavian artery. A radical Masaoka anterior approach permitted left upper lobectomy and reconstruction of the artery.
