    We performed successful surgery for lung cancer after confirming the anatomical abnormality of a tracheal bronchus by three-dimensional multidetector-row computed tomography (3D-MDCT) bronchography and angiography. Tracheal bronchus is unusual, and right upper lobectomy for lung cancer would...

    Background: Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are pathogens that cause chronic respiratory disease, even in immunocompetent patients. We hypothesized that low subcutaneous fat is a predisposing factor for NTM lung disease. Methods: Following a retrospective review of medical records from between...
