A 52-year-old male presented with a history of cough without sputum for one week on admission. An enhanced computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest demonstrated a large mass in the right upper lung lobe in length by 4×5 cm. He then had a fiberoptic bronchoscopy that demonstrated left main bronchial stenosis but no abnormality in the other bronchus. Cancer cells were not found in the branchofiberscope biopsy and lavage fluid.
