Tracheobronchopathia Osteochondroplastica : Case report and literature review

Nasser Al-Busaidi, Dolly Dhuliya, Zulfikar Habibullah


Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica (TPO) is a rare, benign condition involving the trachea. TPO is characterised by osteocartilaginous nodules developing within the submuscosa of the trachea, sparing the posterior wall. We present the first documented case of TPO in Oman in a 25 year-old Omani male who presented with a recurrent, productive cough from which he had suffered throughout the previous two years. Diagnosis was made by characteristic computed tomography scan, bronchoscopic findings, and a histopathological examination.
