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.
