    Granular cell tumours are uncommon, generally benign neoplasms of uncertain origin that occasionally affect the tracheobronchial tree.

Here we describe three cases of endobronchial granular cell tumours, one of which regressed spontaneously after biopsy, and review previous accounts of their bronchoscopic and clinical features.
