The tracheal bronchus is a rare congenital anomaly which occurs as a result of an additional tracheal outgrowth early in the embryonic life. It originates more commonly from the right wall of the trachea, above the carina. It is usually asymptomatic but may cause recurrent pneumonia, chronic bronchitis, or bronchiectasis. Here, we present the case of a 57-year-old lady posted for minimally invasive coronary surgery who was incidentally found to have an accessory bronchus during establishing one lung ventilation. The clinical implications of such a scenario is highlighted.
