ABSTRACT

Hamartoma is one of the most common benign lung tumors. Most of them are located in the lung parenchyme, but very rarely it can originate endobronchially. We report a case of endobronchial hamartoma in a 59 year old woman and a review of the literature.

f3-kjim-3-1-84-14: CT scan showing a mass obstructing the bronchus intermedius.

Mentions: There was no history of tuberculosis and she was a non-smoker. On physical examination body temperature was 36.4°C, the pulse rate was 140/min and the respiration rate was 28/min. Blood pressure was 120/70 mmHg. She appeared dyspneic and no abnormal physical findings were noticed. Hematologic findings were white blood cell count 8,200/mm3 and erythrocyte sedimentation rate 23 mm per hour. Sputum smears for acid fast bacilli were negative and cytology of sputum and bronchial washings revealed no malignant cells. On pulmonary function test, FVC was 2.64 L (108% of predicted value), FEV1 1.24 L, (71% of predicted value) FEV1/FVC 74%. X-ray films of the chest showed right lower lung field collapse, which waxed and waned since March, 1986 (Fig. 1–2). A computed tomographic scan of the chest demonstrated a mass obstructing the bronchus intermedius (Fig. 3). Bronchoscopy and biopsy were done under the impression of bronchial adenoma. The bronchoscopy revealed a movable lobulated pedunculated mass. The pathologic examination suggested squamous cell carcinoma.
