Abstract
Bronchial mucoepidermoid carcinoma is very rarely encountered in children. We report a case of bronchial mucoepidermoid carcinoma in a 10-year-old boy who presented with persistent cough and atelectasis. Bronchoscopic examination showed a tumor mass occluding the right bronchus intermedius, and the mass was removed by bronchoscopy. The results of the pathological examination revealed low-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma. He underwent right middle and lower lobectomy with bronchoplasty, and there was no metastasis. He remains symptom-free without recurrence of bronchial tumor during the follow-up period of 12 months.
Key Words: Mucoepidermoid carcinoma, Bronchus, Child
