A patient is described who presented with symptoms suggestive of asthma but was subsequently found to have a stenotic lesion of the lower trachea and main bronchi. Bronchoscopic biopsy of the lesion revealed tuberculosis. There was a good response to anti-tuberculosis chemotherapy, with no residual stenosis.
