Broncholithiasis is rare but troublesome disease that can cause life-threatening complications. Broncholithiasis is clinically important because calcified nodes may cause a variety of nonspecific signs and symptoms of respiratory diseases prior to the onset of lithoptysis. We were able to see the broncholith by the flexible bronchofiberscopy at the opening of left upper lobal bronchus with almost complete obstruction in a 30-year-old woman. Removal of calcareous material was successfully accomplished by the flexible bronchofiberscopy without complications.
