Pulmonary aspergillomas causing hemoptysis were successfully resected through videothoracoscopy in two cases. We removed an aspergilloma located in the right lower lobe of the lung in a 48-year-old woman with a bronchial cyst and rheumatoid arthritis. We also removed an aspergilloma located in the left upper lobe of the lung in a 59-year-old man with emphysematous bullae and diabetes mellitus. In both cases, the aspergillomas were removed by pulmonary wedge resection through scheduled thoracoscopy.
