Tracheal Glomangioleiomyoma Treated by Multimodal Interventional Bronchoscopy

Ann Thorac Surg. 2016 Apr;101(4):1591-4. doi: 10.1016/j.athoracsur.2015.05.128.


Glomus tumors of the trachea are particularly rare, and their management is usually based on sleeve resection with end-to-end anastomosis. Glomangiomyoma represents the rarest histologic subtype and has been observed only once in the trachea. We describe the first case of tracheal glomangiomyoma treated by multimodal interventional bronchoscopy.
