Endobronchial granulomas in children are mainly caused by mycobacterial infections. In addition to Mycobacterium tuberculosis, other organisms such as nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) have emerged. These organisms cause a broad spectrum of pulmonary diseases. An isolated endobronchial NTM infection in a child is reported. After bronchoscopic removal, a decision not to add drug treatment was made, with satisfactory results. Treatment options are not well established in children and remain a source of controversy. Different options are discussed.
