Abstract We report a case of ipsilateral double tracheal bronchi supplying a tracheal lobe in a 42-year-old man, who presented with a 10-year history of recurrent respiratory infections. Diagnosis was established by chest computed tomography (CCT), virtual endoscopy and bronchoscopy. Both bronchi were surgically resected along with the right upper lobe of the lung and the associated tracheal lobe. To our knowledge, this is the first report of ipsilateral double tracheal bronchi in the adult life to be diagnosed and treated on the basis of modern radiological techniques and especially virtual endoscopy findings. 2001 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd.
