Grounding: Primary tumors of the trachea and main-stem bronchi are rare and comprise from 1 to 2% of all respiratory tract tumors. In adults, the majority (60-90%) of these tumors are malignant, while in children, benign neoplasms are more common. About 1% of the primary tracheal tumors is leiomyoma. This neoplasm can cause obstruction of the upper respiratory tract and fatal asphyxiation.

Description of Clinical Case: A rare clinical case of tracheal leiomyoma in a 14-year-old teenager admitted to the Department of Pulmonology of the Regional Children's Clinical Hospital of Perm with complaints of shortness of breath is presented.

Conclusion: The case presented demonstrates a rare cause of obstruction of the upper and lower airways - tracheal leiomyoma, which requires timely diagnosis and special treatment tactics.
