Inflammatory endobronchial polyps are rarely encountered. We report a case of a 14 years old girl with a benigngranulomatous polyp originating in the bronchus. Computed tomography scan showed an intraluminal soft tissue opacitywhile fiberoptic bronchoscopy revealed a large soft tissue mass completely occluding the left lower lobe. Rigidbronchoscopy under general anaesthesia identified a fleshy mass in the left main stem bronchus which was excised viabronchoscopy. The histopathology showed benign polyp with non-specific inflammation. The patient's symptoms improvedsubsequently and no recurrence was reported till two years of follow-up.
