We herein report a rare surgical case of the right middle lobe vein draining into the inferior pulmonary vein. The anatomical abnormalities in pulmonary veins can have a serious impact on complications during pulmonary surgery. Surgeons must be aware of any variation in the pulmonary vessels, and preoperative assessment of pulmonary venous anomalies is important during pulmonary surgery.
