Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Symptomatic accessory cardiac bronchus is rare. A 52-year-old woman with an accessory bronchus, who had had frequent episodes of hemosputum for 6 years, suffered from empyema complicated by a right lower lung abscess infected with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Resection of the anomalous cardiac bronchus after open drainage of the pleural cavity was successful.
