Abstract

A tracheal metastasis (TM) from non-pulmonary malignancy is extremely rare, and there are very few reports regarding TM. Here, we report a case of the successful tracheal resection of TM of colorectal cancer. A 36-year-old man underwent a surgical resection for the rectal cancer. Approximately 5 years after the surgical resection of the primary rectal cancer, an isolated TM was identified. The patient was successfully treated with a tracheal resection. In conclusion, the current case suggested that the best treatment of the isolated TM might be a surgical resection.
