Pinar CIMEN  | MD  | Mehmet UNLU  | MD 
Abstract: Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica (TO) is a rare disease of unknown etiology and only sporadic cases have been reported in the literature. This disease may be presented with a nonspesific symptom such as persistent cough and exact diagnosis may be delayed. This report describes a case presented with an only symptom of prolonged cough and could be diagnosed lately as TO. Physicians should consider TO in the differential diagnosis of persistent cough and further evaluation should be performed in order to identify the underlying cause in patients with chronic cough.
