We present a case of adenoid cystic tracheal carcinoma detected by computerized tomography (64-MDCT) with cyto-histological correlation in a patient with hemoptysis. In this article we review the differential diagnosis of solitary focal tracheal lesions as they appear in computerized tomography (CT).
In this case, image methods suggested the diagnosis but underestimated the tracheal wall invasion, which was established by histologycal examination of the resected tumor.
