BRONCHIECTASIS

Nope, not bronchiectasis.


Bronchiectasis is essentially the abnormal dilatation of the main bronchi, with chronic inflammation and fibrous scarring of the lung tissue. It can be caused by bronchial obstruction - in this case, the tumour - but the symptoms include a recurrent cough productive of large quantities of purulent sputum, which this patient conspicuously didn't have. Sorry.

Try again.
