Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) has among its possible side effects inhalation, with particular reference to inhalation of microorganisms, (bronchopneumonia aspiration), and gastric juices. Are not described cases of inhalation of foreign bodies in the course of NIV. The peak incidence of foreign body aspiration occurred during the second year of life and during the sixth year in the adult, especially with neurological disease. We present uncommon cause of foreign body aspiration of a 69 year old man with paradontosis, who aspirated three teeth during non invasive ventilation (CPAP). We've removed from the right lower lobe using a fiberoptic bronchoscopy. Source

Tracheobronchial amyloidosis is a rare disorder of unknown cause associated with the extracellular deposition of amyloid protein. This protein stain with Congo red and shows apple-green birefringence under polarized light. Amyloid deposition may occur in association with infiammatory or neoplastic conditions or develop as of a disorder of Ig. The most frequent types of amyloidosis are the AL (primary) and AA (secondary) types. AL amyloid results from a plasma cell discrasia that produces monoclonal light-chain Ig that deposit as fragments. Tracheobronchial amyloidosis is among the localized variant of amyloidosis. It is characterized by deposition of amyloid material as submucosal plaques and/or polypoid tumors in the airwas, which may be localized, diffuse or multifocal. The endobronchial form generally is not associated with systemic amyloidosis. Patients may be asymptomatic or present with dyspnea, wheezing, hemoptysis, recurrent pneumonia, cough, and atelectasis. We present cases of trachebronchial amyloidosis multifocal submucosal plaque and with pseudo tumor mass. Source
