Abstract

Isolated endobronchial inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is an unusual diagnosis among endobronchial masses in childhood. The presenting signs and symptoms may mimic asthma. Rigid bronchoscopy is effective for the diagnosis and treatment. Follow-up is mandatory to check for recurrent disease. Here in, the authors report on a 9-year-old girl with endobronchial inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor to emphasize the possibility of endobronchial lesion in children with longstanding obstructive symptoms.
