Abstract

Hemangiomas are benign tumors most frequently seen in childhood and are mostly associated with cutaneous and mucosal surfaces. Tracheal capillary hemangiomas are extremely rare. The most common presenting symptom is hemoptysis, ranging from minor to major and chronic cough. We present the case of a 12-year-old boy with recurrent hemoptysis due to tracheal capillary hemangioma, who was treated with interventional bronchoscopy.
