          Abstract

          Only nine cases of bronchial granular cell tumor have previously been reported in pediatric patients. We present a 15-year-old girl with acute-onset right shoulder pain, discovered to have a granular cell tumor causing bronchial stenosis and a cavitating post-obstructive right upper lobe pneumonia. The patient was treated with lobectomy. Bronchial granular cell tumors are benign neoplasms that typically present with recurrent pneumonia. Imaging may demonstrate an endobronchial lesion or an associated post-obstructive opacity, but diagnosis requires tissue sampling. To our knowledge, this is the tenth case of bronchial granular cell tumor in a pediatric patient to be reported since 1926.
