Case descriptionA 48-year-old man was referred to our department for further treatment of the productive purulent cough and fever. After bronchoscopy, the biopsy of the specimen showed a bronchial papilloma in the lumen of posterior segment of the right upper lobar bronchus. For computed tomography demonstrated a focal lesion with an air bubble in the posterior segment of the right upper lobe, a lobectomy was performed and PSH was diagnosed.
