Benign tumors of the trachea are rare with leiomyomas even less common. A high degree of clinical suspicion is required for their diagnosis as they usually mimic chest pathology. We report a case of 23-year-old male who presented with orthopnea since 6 weeks without any improvement despite medical treatment. His chest X-ray was normal but the neck computed tomography scan and flexible bronchoscopy showed a tracheal mass. It was resected by anterior endotracheal approach and diagnosed as leiomyoma on histopathology and immunohistochemistry.
