Abstract

A male smoker presented with hemoptysis. A central endobronchial mesenchymoma was diagnosed by flexible bronchoscopy. Mesenchymomas are the most common benign tumor of the lung. They present as two distinct types: pulmonary parenchymal and central bronchial. The central type can be treated with flexible bronchoscopy techniques or surgery depending on the clinical presentation.
