Description :
A 45-year-old female, who was a known case of bronchial asthma with a past history of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) came to us with chief complaints of cough with expectoration and multiple episodes of blood in sputum. The patient was diagnosed with pulmonary TB and had received empirical AKT without microbiological evidence at other health-care centers. At our hospital, she was found to have right paratracheal opacity on chest X-ray. A computed tomography scan of the chest showed an azygos lobe in the right lung. There was consolidation in the azygos lobe that lead to the symptoms of cough and hemoptysis.
