Complete situs inversus is a rare abnormality of autosomal recessive inheritance; it requires particular care during surgery, because the viscus anatomy is a mirror image of the normal anatomy. Reports of surgery for lung cancer in cases of complete situs inversus are very rare. Here, we report a case of lobectomy for lung cancer of the right lower lobe(More)

As operations for lung cancer become more common, more anomalies of various pulmonary arteries and veins are being encountered. Persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) is caused by abnormal development of the sinus venosus in early fetal life. In cases of PLSVC with left lung cancer, particular care must be exercised during the excision of the pulmonary(More)
A-37-year old woman was referred to our hospital because of bilateral pulmonary micronodular shadows on chest X-ray.
