Abstract

Benign tracheal tumors are rare. We describe a 39-year-old man who underwent resection of a tracheal myxoma, a previously unrecognized benign tracheal neoplasm. He presented with a 9-month history of wheezing, cough, and dyspnea on exertion. Treatment with bronchodilators and corticosteroids administered by inhalation and systemically did not diminish his symptoms. Pulmonary function tests showed a pattern of airflow limitation consistent with variable extrathoracic obstruction. Chest radiography and computed tomography revealed a tracheal mass. Tracheal resection of the tumor with reconstruction was curative. The patient Is free of disease 7 years after surgery.
