• Metastasizing squamous cell carcinoma of the lung developed in a patient who had juvenile papillomatosis but had had no previous radiation therapy. At the same time, a significant upper airway obstruction was present. All endobronchial lesions rapidly resolved with radiation therapy, and the carcinoma was resected.
