Abstract

Tracheal bronchus is a rare congenital bronchial anomaly with a prevalence of 0.1-5.0%. The anomaly is generally asymptomatic in adults and detected incidentally bronchoscopy or radiologic examinations. Herein we report a case of tracheal bronchus in an adult male presenting with recurrent haemoptysis and cough.
