Summary

Bronchiectasis was described in the early 19th century by Laennec. Bronchiectasis is a chronic condition characterized by permanent and irreversible dilatation of the bronchial airways and impairment of mucociliary transport mechanism due to repeated infection and inflammation leading to colonization of organism and pooling of the mucus in the bronchial tree

Description

Bronchiectasis was described in the early 19th century by Laennec. Bronchiectasis is a chronic condition characterized by permanent and irreversible dilatation of the bronchial airways and impairment of mucociliary transport mechanism due to repeated infection and inflammation leading to colonization of organism and pooling of the mucus in the bronchial tree.

The prevalence of bronchiectasis is age-related and occurs in every age group and in the pre-antibiotic era . it most often began in childhood. Recent evidence shows that bronchiectasis disproportionately affects women and older individuals and will be contributing to increase in healthcare burden.[3] International data show an increase in the prevalence of bronchiectasis over recent years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Respiratory syndrome characterized by the appearance of a new pulmonary infiltrate on chest x-ray, accompanied by symptoms of fever, cough, chest pain, tachypnea, or DYSPNEA, often seen in patients with SICKLE CELL ANEMIA. Multiple factors (e.g., infection, and pulmonary FAT EMBOLISM) may contribute to the development of the syndrome.

A single lung lesion that is characterized by a small round mass of tissue, usually less than 1 cm in diameter, and can be detected by chest radiography. A solitary pulmonary nodule can be associated with neoplasm, tuberculosis, cyst, or other anomalies in the lung, the CHEST WALL, or the PLEURA.
