We treated a rare case of TO that presented with recurrent massive hemoptysis that resulted in total obstruction of the bronchus intermedius by very large blood clots. Bronchoscopic intervention resulted in a full recovery from the atelectasis. However, there are no guidelines for preventing recurrence of the hemoptysis or disease progression. Conservative and expectant management are used to treat these patients and most do well.
Key Words: Tracheopathia osteochondroplastica, Massive hemoptysis, Atelectasis
