Abstract

Under the name “Uncommon Endobronchial Surface Tumors,” we consider generally benign epithelial proliferations of the trachea and bronchi whose common denominator is a papillary growth pattern. Currently, the World Health Organization recognizes three major histopathologic types: squamous, glandular, and mixed-type papillomas.
