An intraluminal adnoid cystic carcinoma (cylindroma) in the patient reported herein involved just the membranous portion of the distal region of the trachea and extended caudally to include the carina and the membranous portions of both main-stem bronchi - a total linear involvement of 6 cm. The tumor occluded 90% of the airway in its greatest extension. Conservative resection of this extensive tumor was successfully performed by membranous tracheal reconstruction with a pedicled autogenous pericardial patch graft.
