A 48-year-old male presents with 1.5 years of chronic cough and 8 months of hemoptysis.
What i new that the Adenoid cystic tumor in the trachea is more common than SCC. according to aunt Mennie and some othere books.Tthanks alot
The learning point of the case is that an endotracheal lesion is cancer until proven otherwise and a papillary growth pattern is typical of SCC, not ACC. A single lesion with this appearance should never be called a benign papilloma on imaging. Biopsy is required.
Am I reading something wrong? I had to enter squamous cell CA to get the diagnosis of benign tracheal papilloma? In fig 2, is there not some submucosal extension to the left postero-lateral aspect as in adenoid cystic carcinoma? Was there unmentioned malignant transformation in this case?
