Abstract

A 19-yr-old male presented with left lung parahilar consolidation and clinical signs of pneumonia. These symptoms were secondary to an endobronchial mass in the apical segment of the lower lobe. At thoracotomy an apical segment bronchial sleeve resection successfully extirpated what later proved to be an endobronchial eosinophilic granuloma. To the authors' knowledge this is the first case report of an endobronchial eosinophilic granuloma in an adult.
