[A case of a carcinoid tumour presenting as an "upper lobe syndrome"].

Abstract : A 53-year-old woman presented with progressive cough related to an endobronchial carcinoid tumour. The location of the tumour in the right upper lobe bronchus could be described as an "upper lobe syndrome" by analogy with the "middle lobe syndrome" or Brock's syndrome. Surgical management consisted of lobectomy and lymph node dissection. This established the diagnosis of typical carcinoid tumour. There was no mediastinal nodal invasion. Three months after surgery all symptoms had disappeared.
