Pure endobronchial neoplasms are a rare entity, and they may present with diverse pathological findings. Malignant diseases are more common than benign ones, and they mostly originate from the surface epithelium. Endobronchial tumors usually present with symptoms such as cough, hemoptysis, recurrent pneumonia, wheezing, and chest pain. Flexible bronchoscopy is necessary for diagnosis and evaluation of these endobronchial tumors. Advance bronchoscopy or definitive surgery is the modality of treatment for these tumors based on the presentation. We present a case series of patients suffering from different rare endobronchial tumors and their management along with the review of literature.
