Pulmonary aspergilloma is an uncommon pulmonary disease that complicated with many other respiratory disorders. Despite advances in medication, surgical treatment continues to form the basis of aspergilloma treatment. However, the use of uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery is extremely limited in pulmonary aspergilloma. In this report, 5 patients who underwent anatomic pulmonary resection safely with uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery technique without requiring a traditional thoracotomy were presented.
