ABSTRACT: We report the first case in the literature of thoracoscopic bronchial reimplantation in 5 month-old boy. The child was born with congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation of the right lower lobe associated with lower intralobar pulmonary sequestration diagnosed prenatally. An iatrogenic middle lobar bronchus injury was detected per-operatively during thoracoscopic lobectomy. Management and follow-up were exposed.
