Abstract

Broncholithiasis is an uncommon manifestation of healed granulomatous chest disease caused by erosion of a calcified lymph node into a bronchial lumen. It has been associated mostly with histoplasmosis and tuberculosis. The most frequent symptoms are cough and hemoptysis. Surgical indications include obstruction, bronchiectasis, recurrent infection, and bleeding. Broncholithoptysis occurs in very few cases; but as reported, this process fortunately provides a self cure.
