PMID:  482999     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 74-year-old male cigarette smoker presented with hemoptysis and a right upper lobe infiltrate. Fiberoptic bronchoscopy revealed a small (1 x 2 mm) benign-appearing lesion in the right upper lobe bronchus which, on biopsy, was a submucosal capillary hemangioma. This is an exceedingly rare tumor and, to our knowledge, hemoptysis from these lesions in the proximal bronchi has not been previously reported.
