Abstract

A 19-year-old man visited our hospital with a diagnosis of carcinoid arising from the right intermediate bronchus. Clinical examination revealed T3N1M0 lung cancer, so right pneumonectomy with mediastinal lymph node dissection was performed after obtaining informed consent from the patient and his parents. Final pathological diagnosis was T2N2M0 typical carcinoid. Typical bronchial carcinoid with lymph node metastasis is very rare in patients under 20 years old.
