We report a 16 year old girl who presented with recurrent pneumonias and abnormal chest imaging who we diagnosed with an atypical bronchial carcinoid obstructing the left main-stem bronchus. This case highlights the lack of data on adjuvant therapy after surgical resection and the absence of surveillance guidelines for children with pulmonary carcinoid.
