Bronchial carcinoids are uncommon pulmonary tumours, and the gold standard management is surgical resection. Their management is often complicated by their proximal location and propensity to bleed when manipulated. A 22-year-old man was found to have typical carcinoid tumour involving the carina and surgical resection was considered not feasible. We report our experience with a multimodality approach involving arterial embolisation, with subsequent endobronchial resection and ablation. Residual disease was found and managed with definitive carinal resection.
