[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Herein, we report a rare case of a 59-year-old man in whom a partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection was found during an operation for coexisting lung cancer and tuberculosis. It was observed that the anomalous vein drained only from the right upper lobe into the right superior vena cava. The middle and lower pulmonary veins connected normally, and there was no atrial septal defect or any other anomalous condition. An upper lobectomy for coexisting lung cancer and tuberculosis with ligation of the partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection was successfully performed.
