ABSTRACT

This report aims to discuss the occurrence and differential diagnosis in hard palate foreign bodies, in infants. We present the case of a 16- month-old girl who was found to have plastic part of a toy embedded in the hard palate as foreign body. The foreign body was extracted with care to avoid aspiration. The possibilities of misdiagnosis and airway aspiration were discussed. Great care was focused on prevention of airway aspiration.

Primary Endobronchial Leiomyoma

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.567

ABSTRACT

Leiomyoma accounts for less than 2% of the benign tumours of the lung. These lesions are usually asymptomatic. However, they can present symptoms depending on the localization. The HRCT of a 57-year-old male patient with cough, sputum and shortness of breath ongoing for 2 months revealed a 5 mm lesion in the inferior lingular bronchus. The report of the bronchoscopic biopsy was leiomyoma, and the patient underwent lingulectomy.
