Mixed squamous cell and glandular papilloma (mixed papilloma) of the lung is an extremely rare neoplasm, with only 10 cases reported so far in the English literature. We present a case study of endobronchial mixed papilloma with immunohistochemical and etiological investigations. A 49-year-old male with a smoking history complained of hemoptysis, presented with a lung mass closely adjacent to large vessels in the computed tomography findings, and underwent lobectomy. The 3.0-cm sized polypoid tumor was histologically diagnosed as endobronchial mixed papilloma. Immunohistochemically, intracellular mucin was positive for MUC5AC, which is expressed in tracheobronchial goblet cells. CAM5.2 and CK19 were diffusely positive, indicating that the tumor originated from the columnar epithelium by squamous metaplasia. CEA and CA19-9 were focally positive. A human papillomavirus (HPV) investigation with in situ hybridization using a wide spectrum probe and a newly-developed PCR system did not detect any HPV infection. Including this case with a detailed HPV investigation, all of the reported cases of mixed papilloma were HPV-negative, and a literature review including newly-reported cases indicated a high frequency of smoking in such cases. Endobronchial mixed papillomas might have a smoking-related etiology.
