Abstract

Endobronchial involvement in chronic lymphocytic leukemia is rare. This report describes a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and Richter's syndrome in whom bronchial obstruction occurred due to massive peribronchial lymphadenopathy and endobronchial leukemic infiltrates. Endobronchial Richter's transformation has not been previously reported.
