Abstract


Granular cell tumors (GCTs) are benign neoplasms that are most commonly found in the head and neck region. We present a case of endobronchial granular cell tumor presenting as hemoptysis in a 22-year-old African American female. Patient subsequently underwent a right upper and middle lobectomy. Upon histological analysis was found to have GCT with border impinging upon cartilage and adjacent peribronchial lymph nodes.
