Amyloidosis is a disease characterized by extracellular deposition of pathologic fibrillar protein in organs and tissues. Diffuse primary tracheobronchial amyloidosis is rare. Herein, we report a case of a male patient with diffuse tracheobronchial amyloidosis, initially diagnosed as bronchial asthma.
