A 58-year-old woman with multiple proximal airway stenoses due to sarcoidosis failed to improve with steroid therapy. After bronchoscopic balloon dilation with adjunctive topical mitomycin C, there was symptomatic improvement and preserved patency of the airways one month later. However, the patient's effort tolerance gradually deteriorated subsequently, and a repeat bronchoscopy one year later showed recurrence of airway stenosis.
