Azygos lobe which appears in the inner surface of the right lung apex is a rare venous anomaly of the lung. It is usually asymptomatic and does not require a specific treatment, but it should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of lesions in the lungs and should be considered for the presence of cardio-pulmonary pathology that may accompany. In this study, we present a pediatric patient, who was referred to the family medicine outpatient clinic with the complaints of fever and cough and was diagnosed with azygos lobe.
