• Only five granular cell myoblastomas affecting the cervical trachea have been previously reported. Two of these tumors appear to be primary lesions of the trachea, while the remaining three appear to involve it only secondarily. We report a case of an intraluminal granular cell myoblastoma arising from the right tracheal wall in a 45-year-old woman. The tumor extended into the partition wall between trachea and esophagus. Treatment was by surgical excision of the tumor and the involved tracheal ring. The patient was free of recurrence one year after treatment.
