Incidentally, a lesion in the right upper pulmonary lobe was found in a 74-year-old male patient. The flexible bronchoscopy revealed an endobrochial lipoma in the right lower lobe as the only pathological finding. Due to multiple co-morbidities, no intervention was performed initially. Since the endobronchial lipoma increased in size during follow-up, it was removed by cryoextraction. This case report on an endobronchial lipoma includes a short summary of this rare benign lung tumor.
