A 28-year-old man presented with a bronchial wall schwannoma occurring in the right main to the intermediate bronchus. The tumor was resected en-bloc with the stem bronchi without pulmonary resection. Airway reconstruction consisted of an end-to-end anastomosis of the intermedius bronchus to the right main bronchus, and an end-to-side anastomosis of the right upper lobe bronchus to the lateral wall of the trachea. Postoperative course was unevetful. Bronchoplastic procedure with preservation of the lung parenchyma seems to be the technique of choice for benign tumors occurring intramurally in the stem bronchus.
