A ciliated muconodular papillary tumor (CMPT) or bronchiolar adenoma (BA) is a rather rare and unique type of lung tumor characterized by tripartite cellular components with a papillary-predominant structure including ciliated columnar cells, mucinous cells, and basal cells. Here, we present the case of a 64-year-old woman who was diagnosed with CMPT in our center. In addition to reporting the clinicopathological characteristics of this case, we also conducted whole exome sequencing (WES) to explore the underlying mechanism. According to current evidence, CMPTs tends to be benign or of low grade malignancy. However, this requires further validation.
