Abstract

We report a case of rapidly growing pleural empyema due to endobronchial lipoma. The diagnosis was established by chest computed tomography (CT). Endobronchial lipoma is a rare benign tumor of the tracheobronchial tree which can cause irreversible damage to the distal lung parenchyma if diagnosis and treatment are not carried out in time.
