Abstract: An adult case of pulmonary resection for repeated infections in a supernumerary tracheal bronchus combined with a pulmonary artery sling is reported. A 33-year-old woman with a pulmonary artery sling was referred for recurrent lung infections. Chest computed tomography showed the left pulmonary artery arising from the right pulmonary artery and coursing posterior to the trachea. The lung parenchyma connected to the tracheal bronchus showed dense opacity and traction bronchiectasis. Partial pulmonary resection was performed with an ultrasonically activated scalpel after the tracheal bronchus was auto-sutured. The patient's postoperative course was uneventful, and she is now in good condition.
