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.
