    Plain radiograph Chest x-rays are usually abnormal but are inadequate in the diagnosis or quantification of bronchiectasis.[radiopaedia.org] Surgery is indicated in unsuccessful medical treatment and complications of bronchiectasis e.g. haemoptysis, lung abscess, lung masses and pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 21-year-old woman presented to our hospital with a 9-day history of productive cough and fever.
