We report here a case of right lung cancer with right aortic arch. A 67-year-old woman with right aortic arch was found to have a 3-cm squamous cell carcinoma arising in the right middle lobe. Right middle lobectomy with lymphadenectomy was performed via right thoracotomy. Although a unique operative view required particular attention in identifying nodes in the mediastinum, we were able to perform the operation without specific techniques.
