Abstract

Background
Benign fibroepithelial polyps of respiratory tract are very rare.
Case report
A 42-year-old man was admitted to our hospital suffering from cough and dyspnea. The CT scan of the thorax revealed a round, smooth tumor in the middle part of the trachea. The tumor was successfully removed endoscopically using an electrocautery snare. The postoperative period was uneventful; patient‘s condition was perfect. Histology showed a fibroepithelial polyp – a rare benign lesion of the trachea.
Conclusions
Endobronchial electrosurgery is a safe and effective treatment method. Clinicians should always consider the possibility of tracheobronchial tumors.
