Despite the lobectomy in video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is widely applied, in VATS the resection of benign lymphadenopathy is still less performed because of less importance in affecting the prognosis. We report our surgery procedure of benign lymphadenopathy in lobectomy with benign pulmonary disease performed in a two-port approach. A 50-year-old male was operated on by the thoracoscopic approach through two-port incision. And the postoperative recovery was uneventful with no complications occurred.
