Özet

A 44-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with cough and sputum symptoms. After observing bilateral masses in the chest X-ray, a tomography scan of the thorax revealed bilateral tumors. Bronchoscopic biopsies were performed. The histopathological examination showed bilateral typical carcinoid tumors. A left lower lobectomy and a right upper sleeve lobectomy were carried out subsequently. No pathological lesions were observed one year after the operation.
