DISCUSSION: Bronchial carcinoids are uncommon group of pulmonary neoplasms that are characterized by neuroendocrine differentiation and relatively indolent clinical behavior.1 Although referred to as bronchial adenoma, these tumors are recognized as malignant neoplasms because of their potential to metastasize.2 They account for 10% of all carcinoid tumors. Overall, 75% of bronchial carcinoids arise from the lobar bronchi, 10% in main-stem bronchi, and 15% in the periphery of lungs. Around 90% are well differentiated (typical). Atypical carcinoids have a higher malignant potential than typical.2 Average age of presentation of typical bronchial carcinoid is 40-50 years. Symptoms arise from bronchial obstruction and include persistent cough, hemoptysis, and recurrent pneumonitis. Surgical resection is the primary mode of therapy.
