A ­case of ­lobar tor­sion ­after ­lung sur­gery is ­reported ­here. She devel­oped a ­right ­middle ­lobar tor­sion diag­nosed by post­op­er­a­tive bron­chial fibers­copy, sug­gesting incom­plete obstruc­tion of the inter­me­dial bron­chus. Re-op­er­a­tion was per­formed suc­cess­fully ­either by ­fixing the ­right ­lower ­lobe to ­both the ­middle ­lobe and the tho­racic ­wall. ­Careful post­op­er­a­tive obser­va­tion ­with ­chest radiog­raphy, bron­chial fibers­copy, are impor­tant for pre­cise diag­nosis of and ­therapy for ­lobar tor­sion fol­lowing pul­mo­nary lobec­tomy.
