Primary tracheal tumors are very rare and 10%–20% are benign tumors. Tracheal lipoma is extremely rare and only a few cases have been reported in the literature. A 69-year-old male patient presented to the emergency department with complaints of shortness of breath, respiratory distress, chest pain and cough. Chest CT scan showed a round mass in the topography of the trachea that almost caused airway obstruction. The lesion was resected endoscopically and the pedicle base was cauterized. Tracheal lipoma is a rare condition that should lie in the differential diagnosis of treatment-resistant asthma.
