Three patients who had a lung abscess and bronchial inflammatory polyps are presented. The patients, all males, were 45, 65, and 74 years old. Imaging studies showed a lung abscess, and bronchoscopy revealed protruding lesions in the involved bronchi. The histological findings were inflammatory polyps. In all cases, the inflammatory polyps regressed with systemic antibiotic treatment, and the lung abscess improved. These cases were interesting in terms of the etiology of bronchial inflammatory polyps.
