Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Endobronchial tuberculosis is a rare occurrence in the developed countries. The diagnosis is often delayed due to its nonspecific presentation and paucity of radiographic findings. The condition is often misdiagnosed as either bronchial asthma or lung cancer. The delay in the diagnosis often leads to airway stenosis and requires therapeutic bronchoscopy. Here we present 2 cases of endobronchial tuberculosis to illustrate our point.
