Objectives: We present a case of Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica (TBOC) found incidentally in a patient being managed for recurrent vocal fold leukoplakia and dysplasia. Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica is a rare disease of the airway.Methods: Single case report.Results: We review the clinical manifestations, diagnosis, pathophysiology and treatment for our patient with this rare disease.
Conclusion: Tracheobronchopathia Osteochondroplastica is a rare benign disease of the airway which usually presents incidentally with no evidence of symptom. It is important to consider this disease on the differential of patients with classic airway findings.
