Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome BRRS is a rare, autosomal dominant condition characterized by macrocephaly, benign hamartomatous tumors, pigmented penile macules, lipomas, hemangiomas, and cognitive deficits.

To our knowledge, this is the first report of BRRS tumors causing airway obstruction that required surgical intervention.
