Tracheobronchial adenoid cystic carcinoma is a rare malignancy. To the best of our knowledge, its enhancement pattern on multiphasic contrast-enhanced multidetector computed tomography has not been re-ported. Herein, we report the computed tomography findings of three consecutive cases of tracheobronchial adenoid cystic carcinoma. All lesions presented a gradual enhancement pattern on multiphasic contrast-enhanced computed tomography. We speculate that the gradual enhancement pattern on multiphasic contrast-enhanced computed tomography could potentially serve as a characteristic imaging feature and may therefore be a clue to diagnose tracheobronchial adenoid cystic carcinoma.
