A bronchial glomus tumor surgically treated with segmental resection.

Abstract

Extracutaneous glomus tumors are unusual and their occurrence in bronchus has been recognized with rarity. We present the clinical and pathological features of a case with bronchial glomus tumor. A 67-year-old man was admitted with a symptom of cough, and his chest CT scan and fiberoptic bronchoscopy demonstrated a localized polypoid tumor in the right superior bronchial trunk. Histology of the biopsy specimen by bronchoscopy was demonstrated as a typical carcinoid tumor. The tumor was surgically resected by a segmental resection of the right superior bronchial trunk and end-to-end anastomosis was followed to reconstruct the airway tract through a standard right side thoracotomy approach. The pathological and immunohistochemical findings resulted in the diagnosis of the tumor as a bronchial glomus tumor.
