He was 66 years old and had a history of old unclear pulmonary tuberculosis with irregular medication 20 years ago and intermittent hemoptysis for several years. In x-ray study, there was a bilateral upper lobe aspergilloma with cavity. He received bilateral wedge resection through thoracotomy with some interval to reduce postoperative complications. We selected the priorty of operation through the bronchoscope in the operation room. Both sides had the same pathology of aspergilloma and he was discharged after an uneventful postoperative course.
