Abstract

Bronchopleural fistula (BPF) typically occurs in the weeks after lobectomy or pneumonectomy and rarely occurs years after a surgical procedure. Management of BPF can be challenging, especially when it manifests in a delayed fashion. The report presents a case of asymptomatic BPF and pleurocutaneous fistula in a patient with a remote history of right pneumonectomy and unusual anatomy.
