We report the case of an 18-year old female with right lower lobe atelectasis, who was admitted to our hospital because of a nonproductive cough. She underwent fiberoptic bronchoscopy that revealed a peduncular polyp in the right truncus intermedius or middle bronchus. Before admission for laser polypectomy, she spontaneously coughed up the tissue mass, and the right lower lobe atelectasis disappeared. We report a rare case of 'autopolypectomy' of a bronchial adenoma.
