A patient is described with a synchronous intraluminal squamous cell carcinoma of the left upper lobe carina. He refused photodynamic therapy after sleeve lobectomy of the right upper lobe. The intraluminal tumor was treated with fiberoptic bronchoscopic electrosurgery. Complete remission was achieved, at the moment already for 36 months.
