Schweigert M, Dubecz A, Ofner D, Stein HJ - Ulster Med J (2013)

Bottom Line: Abnormalities of the major airways are very uncommon congenital conditions which occur in approximately 2% of the adult population.Usually aberrant bronchi are asymptomatic and are only found by coincidence.We present the rare case of a 49-years-old woman with a tracheal bronchus causing associated with recurrent pneumonia of the right upper lobe.

Abnormalities of the major airways are very uncommon congenital conditions which occur in approximately 2% of the adult population. Usually aberrant bronchi are asymptomatic and are only found by coincidence. We present the rare case of a 49-years-old woman with a tracheal bronchus causing associated with recurrent pneumonia of the right upper lobe.
