Abstract
The appearance of mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the lung during in childhood is an uncommon neoplasm. Symptoms of progressive bronchial obstruction proceed the recognition of this lesion. Adequate surgical resection precludes the need for further radiation therapy or chemotherapy. The patient underwent bronchoscopy to investigate the cause of chronic coughing, which revealed a tumor. Histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of mucoepidermoid carcinoma. He was treated by lobectomy. The patient has been well and free of recurrence.
Key Words: Mucoepidermoid carcinoma, Child
