Knowledge of lung variation is essential to all medical professionals to exactly interpret radiographs, computed tomography scans, to diagnose, plan and modify a surgical procedure. In this case, a very rare variation has been studied, where three lungs were present in a cadaver. There was a duplication of lungs on left side, none of them had a fissure. Whereas, right lung had normal gross anatomical features. Such variation has not been reported till date. It should be taken into consideration while interpreting radiological variations and during surgeries like lobectomy, segmentectomies.
