Following an aggressive episode of bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, a 54-year-old man developed a symptomatic air leak via a tunnel between the left upper lobe and an extra chest wall cavity. Following the failure of several surgical procedures to close the tunnel, endobronchial valves normally used in management of emphysema were used to successfully treat the air leak.
