Neurofibromas arising from the trachea and bronchus are relatively rare. We report the case of a 42-year-old woman who came to our hospital with severe shortness of breath. Right sleeve pneumonectomy was performed, and neurofibroma was confirmed by pathologic examination. In a search of the world literature, 28 cases of endotracheobronchial neurofibromas were found. The literature is reviewed.
