We report a rare case of bilateral metachronous bronchial typical carcinoid tumor surgically treated. At the age of 33 years, the patient underwent, in another hospital, a left upper lobectomy for a typical carcinoid tumor. After 4 years, the patient manifested the symptoms of a new central typical carcinoid tumor located at the origin of the middle lobe bronchus and infiltrating the intermedius one. This tumor was first treated by laser therapy, but long-term follow-up evaluation with bronchoscopy revealed a local recurrence of disease. So we performed a middle sleeve lobectomy with radical node dissection. © 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
