Tuberculosis as a cause of upper lobe bronchiectasis.

Abstract

Bronchiectasis occurs frequently in association with pulmonary tuberculosis and is caused primarily by tuberculous bronchitis. It is common in all types of tuberculosis, especially in the fibroid lesion stage. It may occur with active tuberculosis and become part of the tuberculous picture. It may also occur with inactive tuberculosis and then present a distinct symptom complex. It is easy to diagnose. It is a relatively benign disease and usually no special treatment is needed; but when it becomes severe, pulmonary resection is the procedure of choice.
