The development of modern diagnostic methods has greatly stimulated the interest of the clinician in the subject of bronchial neoplasms. That bronchial tumors are by no means an infrequent occurrence has been shown since the roentgen rays and bronchoscopy have come into general use. This is particularly true of malignant tumors. Well localized benign intrabronchial tumors, however, are extremely rare. Since this type of tumor tends to produce obstruction of the lumen which may be followed by extensive pathologic anatomic changes and cause serious symptoms, these cases frequently require the attention of both the internist and the surgeon. For these reasons, the report of a recently observed case seems justified.
