A 77-year-old male patient was hospitalized due to dyspnea and cough. At chest auscultation, Rhonchi was heard from both lung fields. The chest computed tomography (CT) observed nodular lesions within mid-trachea. Bronchoscope observed salient mass from the membranous portion in the mid-trachea, and after taking a biopsy, it was diagnosed as hamartoma. Tracheal hamartoma is a rare benign tumor of lung. Similar way to the endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), we did endoscopic resection of tracheal hamartoma. We report a case of tracheal hamartoma treated with Endoscopic mucosal resection via flexible bronchoscopy.
Key Words: Bronchoscopy, Endoscopic mucosal resection, Tracheal hamartoma
