Abstract. Congenital anomalies of the right main bronchi have not been fully described. Bronchial anomalies are usually asymptomatic unless they coexist with other abnormalities. We describe a rare bronchial anomaly in a 2-month-old girl in which the right upper lobe, middle lobe, and lower lobe bronchi all originated at the same point as a result of a developmental teratogenic long right main bronchus and an absent bronchus intermedius. Furthermore, the left main bronchus contained a proximal segment of stenosis.
