11/14. One very rare and one new tracheal tumour found by electron microscopy: glomus tumour and acinic cell tumour resembling carcinoid tumours by light microscopy.

    Tracheal tumours were removed surgically from two patients and diagnosed as carcinoid tumours by routine light microscopy. At a later date, electron microscopy was performed on stored tumour tissue and no neurosecretory granules were found in either case. One showed features of a glomus tumour and the other of an acinic cell tumour. Only two glomus tumours appear to have been reported previously in the trachea, and no acinic cell tumours. Electron microscopy is thus sometimes of great assistance in diagnosing accurately unusual tumours of the lower respiratory tract.

12/14. Tracheal glomus tumour.

    A glomus tumour situated at the posterior wall of the trachea in a 65-year-old man presenting with dyspnoea and haemoptysis is described. The tumour was excised with an Nd-YAG laser, with no visible recurrence a year later. This is the fifth reported case of tracheal glomus tumour.

13/14. glomus tumor of the trachea.

    We report a case of a glomus tumor in the trachea which was an incidental finding in a 66-year-old man. The histological picture and immunohistochemical profile were typical for this tumor. The glomus tumor is an exceedingly rare mass lesion in the trachea, but it is useful to keep it among differential diagnostic alternatives when a tracheal tumor is seen on radiographs or endoscopy.

14/14. Successful resection of a glomus tumor arising from the lower trachea: report of a case.

    Tracheal glomus tumors are extremely rare. We present herein the case of a 43-year-old man with hoarseness who was found to have a glomus tumor arising from the lower trachea. bronchoscopy and chest computed tomography revealed a polypoid mass in the membranous portion of the trachea just above the carina. The patient underwent successful tracheal sleeve resection and reconstruction. A pathologic diagnosis of a glomus tumor with clear surgical margins was subsequently confirmed, and the patient is well 20 months postoperatively with an intact anastomosis.
