Background: Primary schwannoma of trachea and bronchus is very rare and can cause the same signs and symptoms as asthma, including airway-obstruction.

Case Report: We introduce a 17 years-old girl with left bronchus schwannoma who was under treatment with the primary diagnosis of asthma and allergy. Bronchoscope intervention showed a pedicular tumor in left bronchus which protruded from the orifice of bronchus during hale and inhale leading to more than %80 lumen obstruction of airway.

Discussion: The patient underwent surgical treatment of tumor resection and bronchoplasty along with long survival. Following this operation, all signs and symptoms were resolved. Therefore we should be aware that tumors, even this rare one should be considered as a differential diagnosis in patients suffering from airway obstruction, especially when children and young adults don response to usual treatments.
