CLINICAL DIAGNOSIS OF TRACHEAL ADENOMA (CYLINDROMA): REPORT OF A CASE

CLINICAL DIAGNOSIS OF TRACHEAL ADENOMA (CYLINDROMA): REPORT OF A CASE Abstract The presenting symptoms in patients with tracheal tumors may be those commonly associated with bronchial asthma. Such a clinical picture is illustrated in the following case report. A 48-year-old woman was admitted to the Beth-El Hospital on Jan. 17, 1959, because of respiratory difficulty. She had been well until 1947, when she suffered an attack of bronchopneumonia. Since then she had developed wheezing respiration and had had two or three severe lung infections each year. Her sputum consisted of a scant white or grayish mucoid material, except for insignificant blood-streaking whenever her cough was severe. These minimal hemoptyses had antedated her attack of pneumonia by six years, and the most recent attack had occurred three days prior to admission. In 1950, because of peripheral blood eosinophilia (8%) and a sputum specimen containing many eosinophils, the patient was referred to one of us (A. I. K.) for therapy. She was found References 1.

Abstract

Abstract The presenting symptoms in patients with tracheal tumors may be those commonly associated with bronchial asthma. Such a clinical picture is illustrated in the following case report. A 48-year-old woman was admitted to the Beth-El Hospital on Jan. 17, 1959, because of respiratory difficulty. She had been well until 1947, when she suffered an attack of bronchopneumonia. Since then she had developed wheezing respiration and had had two or three severe lung infections each year. Her sputum consisted of a scant white or grayish mucoid material, except for insignificant blood-streaking whenever her cough was severe. These minimal hemoptyses had antedated her attack of pneumonia by six years, and the most recent attack had occurred three days prior to admission. In 1950, because of peripheral blood eosinophilia (8%) and a sputum specimen containing many eosinophils, the patient was referred to one of us (A. I. K.) for therapy. She was found References 1.
