Pulmonary fibrosis with threatening pulmonary gangrene occurred as a complication of chemoradiation treatment of a patient undergoing right upper lung lobe resection for lung cancer. We were forced to perform right side pneumonectomy, after which late bronchial stump opening and empyema developed. With a demonstration of our case, we intend to show how oncological treatment with severe iatrogenic damage caused a chain of complications and what were the therapeutic tools that led to the recovery of the patient after 3 years.
