Abstract

Although primary tracheobronchial tumors are extremely rare in children, recurrent respiratorysymptoms resistant to conventional therapy require further investigations to exclude possible malignantobstructive causes. As the matter of fact, early diagnosis may allow minimally invasive surgeries, improvingthe standard of living and the globally survival rate. The aim of this article is to provide an overview ofdiagnosis and management of tracheobronchial tumors in the early age, since only few reports are reportedin the worldwide literature.
