A rare case of a mucoepidermoid bronchial adenoma discovered in a 6-year-old girl with recurrent pneumonia is presented. A review of the literature suggests that less than 15 cases in the pediatric age group have been reported. Although primary lung carcinomas are rare in children, this case illustrates that recurrent lobar pneumonia in children should be aggressively investigated and that the proper therapy is conservative surgical resection.
