Abstract

Lymphoepithelioma like carcinoma is rare in locations other than nasopharynx. We report the second case of this tumour in trachea, in a young female patient, who was managed with concomitent surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The patient is disease free in the one-year follow up. The tumour presented difficulties during intubation for general anaesthesia and during surgery. Association with Epstein-Barr virus was not found in our case.
