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. Endobronchial hamartoma may cause irreversible lung damage due to the bronchial obstruction if it is not diagnosed and treated properly. The most frequent clinical features are hemoptysis and obstructive pneumonia. Transbronchial endoscopic surgery is a good therapeutic choice and is re-commended first for patients who have resectable small endobronchial hamartoma. Here, we report a case of endo-bronchial hamartoma treated with rigid bronchoscopy and various microforceps with a review of the literature.
Key Words: Endobronchial hamartoma, Rigid bronchoscopy
