An epithelial-myoepithelial tumor is an extremely rare pulmonary neoplasm. Only 21 cases have been reported to date. This report presents a case of left main bronchial epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma in a 43-year-old woman. No mediastinal lymph nodes were enlarged in computed tomographic scan, and no tumor growth was noted beyond the bronchial cartilage layer by endobronchial ultrasound imaging. This report highlights the usefulness of endobronchial ultrasound imaging for determining the depth of tumor invasion and choosing an alternative approach to surgical resection.
