Endobronchial aspergilloma is a rare disease entity with pulmonary involvement of aspergillus. Few cases of endobronchial aspergilloma associated with malignant lesions have been reported in the literature. We present 2 more cases of endobronchial aspergilloma with underlying lung cancer. And summarize the published literatures to investigate the clinical manifestations, bronchoscopic characters, imaging performances in patients with endobronchial aspergilloma with underlying malignant lesions of the lung. A review of the literature reveals 8 cases of endobronchial aspergilloma with coexisting lung malignant lesions upon presentation. The medical details of the patients including age, sex, clinical symptoms, radiological manifestations bronchoscopic characters, diagnosis and treatment are summarized. Endobronchial aspergilloma is usually incidentally detected in patients with underlying lung disease. With the increasing popularity of flexible bronchoscopy, it is being recognized as a necrotic mass causing bronchial obstruction. We should be paid more attention to prevent misdiagnosis of combined endobronchial aspergilloma and lung malignant diseases. © 2015, E-Century Publishing Corporation. All rights reserved.
