Primary intratracheal neurilemoma.


We report a case in a 38-year-old white woman of a benign primary intratracheal neurilemoma that recurred 12 years after an initial endoscopic excision. Of the 12 intratracheal neurilemomas that have previously been reported, all occurred in white persons in an age range of 6 to 71 years and most were located in the lower trachea and produced symptoms of cough and wheezing.
