Endobronchial malignancies are usually associated with bronchogenic carcinoma. About 1.1% of cases may be due to extrapulmonary source of metastasis. Only few case reports have mentioned about the carcinoma of prostate with mediastinal lymph node and endobronchial metastasis. Here, we report such a case where endobronchial lesions were removed bronchoscopically and the patient improved symptomatically. Biopsy showed the metastatic adenocarcinoma and immunohistochemistry was positive for prostate-specific antigen.
