Abstract

A case of middle lobe torsion occurring after a right upper lobectomy is described. The appearance of a wedge-shaped opacity with a characteristically positioned oblique fissure should alert the radiologist to the possibility of torsion. The combination of radiographic, bronchoscopic, and clinical findings should direct the clinician to the correct diagnosis.
