KHRWS Imageology Centre, Medical College Hospital, Kozhikode 673008.


Here one case of bronchial carcinoid is reported, which presented as intrabronchial obstructing lesion with sequelae. Carcinoid syndrome is quite uncommon with bronchial carcinoids and x-ray or CT usually gives non-specific appearances. Still, the relatively younger age group of patients and presence of obstructing lesions in major bronchi with features like extraluminal extension and mucoid impactions are helpful signs. However, a few instances of carcinoid mimics do occur during imaging studies, like other types of intrabronchial tumours and long standing foreign bodies.
