275 – Tracheal Carcinoma

Image corresponding to the previous case, after a recanalization of the right source bronchus.
There are diffuse inflammatory changes and blood in the path of the bronchus, which can be followed up to the lower lobe.
The folds in the source bronchus, deep and tortuous, are diverted to enter the upper lobe, but it is occluded.

Neoplastic tissue persists in the medial wall of the main bronchus and the tracheal carina is unrecognizable.
