Abstract

We report a case of bronchial gland cell-type adenocarcinoma with recurrent pneumonia and hemoptysis. After persistent hemoptysis since the summer of 1999, a 26-year-old female patient was admitted to our hospital because of bacterial pneumonia of the left lower lobe in March 2000. Treatments with antibiotics resulted in only a transient improvement of the pneumonia, and so she was re-admitted for an investigation of the recurrent pneumonia accompanied with hemoptysis. Bronchofiberscopy revealed a polypoid lesion at the orifice on the left B10 bronchus. Although the microscopic examination of the biopsied specimens showed only non-specific inflammatory changes, a left lower lobectomy was performed. The pathological examination of the resected lung confirmed that the polypoid region was bronchial gland cell type adenocarcinoma at the stage of pT1N0M0.
