TAPIAS-VARGAS, LEONIDAS et al. Primary adenoid cystic carcinoma of the lobar bronehus: Case report. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2011, vol.63, n.1, pp. 73-75. ISSN 0718-4026. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262011000100013.
Primary airway adenoid cystic carcinoma is very uncommon. We report a 60 years old male consulting for hemoptysis and dyspnea. A chest CAT scan showed a mass in the right superior lobar bronehus. The patient was subjected to a right superior sleeve lobectomy and the pathological study of the surgical piece revealed an adenoid cystic carcinoma. The patient received adjuvant radiotherapy. Surgery and radiation therapy are the mainstay of treatment for this type of tumors.
