We report a case of tracheal adenoma presenting as hemoptysis and reversible airflow obstruction in an ex-smoker. A questionable defect in the tracheal air shadow on a posteroanterior chest radiograph was shown on CT to be a pedunculated, mid-tracheal tumor. Two-stage bronchoscopic laser resection resulted in an apparently normal tracheal mucosa. Results of postresection spirometry were normal.
