Congenital peribronchial myofibroblastic tumour emerges as an extremely exceptional pulmonary tumefaction incriminating neonates and infants. Initially documented as a ‘hamartoma’ in 1949 by Jones, tumefaction was designated as congenital peribronchial myofibroblastic tumour preliminarily in 1993 by Mcginnis., et al. Neoplasm encompasses airways and exhibits peribronchial expansion. The predominantly solid tumefaction is composed of cartilage and interlacing fascicles of spindle shaped cells and elliptical cells.
