Overall Comment

This was a 57-year old gentleman who presented with hemoptysis. He used to smoke cigarettes occasionally. Flexible bronchoscopy was performed for hemoptysis to exclude airway tumors. On bronchoscopy, we observed nodules in the anterior and lateral wall of the trachea. The nodules spared the membranous portion of the trachea. A diagnosis of tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica was made.
