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.
