This is the case of a 59-old female smoker who had an undetermined 2cm nodule in the left upper lobe. Bronchoscopy was normal. A biopsy was performed under CT-scan control and revealed a primary adenocarcinoma (stage I lung carcinoma). 18-FDG scintigraphy showed a significant and isolated fixation. A thoracoscopic left upper lobectomy is presented. This technique is presented in the book : D. Gossot Atlas of endoscopic major pulmonary resections (2010) Springer-Verlag France www.springer.com/978-2-287-99776-1
