A 16-year-old girl presented with a 6-month history of intermittent dry cough. For the 2 weeks prior to hospitalization, the patient had tactile fevers, right-sided chest pain, increasing wheezing, and fatigue.A chest radiograph demonstrated right lower lobe collapse with air bronchograms. Contrast-enhanced chest CT scans demonstrated an enhancing hypervascular endobronchial lesion within the bronchus intermedius. There was marked right lower-lobe volume loss with cylindrical bronchiectasis and mucus filling of some of the dilated bronchi. A 24-hour SPECT image from an Octreotide scan showed increased radiotracer uptake within the right chest in the region of the hypervascular endobronchial lesion.She was diagnosed with Endobronchial carcinoid
