Abstract

We report a case of bronchostenosis manifested as an asymptomatic mass on preoperative chest roentgenogram. Bronchoscopic biopsy inadvertently led to drainage of the obstructed bronchus. The various pathogenic origins of bronchostenosis are discussed, with the most likely cause in this case being previous tuberculosis.
