Abstract

Benign tumors of the lung and endobronchial tree are uncommon. Endobronchial lipomas are extremely rare, with incidence ranging from 0.1 to 0.5% of all lung tumors. Endobronchial lipomas originate from fat cells located in the peribronchial and occasionally the submucosal tissue of the main bronchi. The paper presents a case, in whom four years after transbronchial resection of the endobronchial lipoma, recurrence of the lesion in the same lung was confirmed. The diagnosis was made on the basis of CT scan, which detected lesions with previously identified morphology.
