Tracheal bronchus is a rare anomaly which was generally diagnosed incidentally. We presented a case of segmental bronchiectasis in the right upper lobe in a patient with tracheal bronchus. He admitted to our clinic with the complaints of cough, sputum and recurrent infection. Bronchiectasis was detected in chest computed tomography. At bronchoscopy, a right tracheal bronchus with purulent secretion was present. The apical and anterior segments of the right lung were resected. At 1 year follow up, the patient was fully recovered.
