Bronchial typical carcnoid (TC) is a disease entity within the spectrum of neuroendocrine lung tumors [1]. Standard treatment is surgical resection [2,3]. However, intraluminal bronchoscopic treatment (IBT) has been shown to be a feasible alternative provided tumor is strictly intraluminal [4]. High resolution computer tomography (HRCT) can assess bronchial wall involvement or peribronchial tumor growth [5]. Our strategy has so far been complete tumor debulking by IBT, followed by HRCT after 4… CONTINUE READING
