Cylindroma of the Trachea: Report of Case

Cylindroma of the Trachea: Report of Case Abstract A 51-year-old white man was admitted to the Nemazee Hospital on June 1, 1957, with the chief complaint of difficulty in breathing. He was perfectly well until six years ago, when he developed a mild cough that did not respond to any medication. At the onset he did not bring up any sputum, but about two years ago he began to produce some bloody sputum. Eight months ago he gradually developed dyspnea, for which he was finally admitted to the hospital. Physical examination revealed a well-developed and well-nourished man who was in severe respiratory distress. The blood pressure was 110/70; the pulse was 76; the respiratory rate was 24, and the temperature was 36.9 C (98.4 F). Direct laryngoscopy revealed a lobulated tumor that had a reddish smooth surface and occupied almost 9/10 of the tracheal lumen and was attached to the right anterolateral tracheal walls.
