  • Bronchiectasis

    Broncholiths are an uncommon cause of bronchiectasis and recurrent pneumonias.[] Surgery is indicated in unsuccessful medical treatment and complications of bronchiectasis e.g. haemoptysis, lung abscess, lung masses and pneumothorax.[] A 21-year-old woman presented to our hospital with a 9-day history of productive cough and fever.

  • Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis

    In 14 patients suffering from idiopathic alveolar proteinosis, therapy-refractory surfactant deficiency, or recurrent pneumonia the SP-A genes have been sequenced.[] Active pleural drainage of the pneumothorax was unsuccessful and after two months, surgical suture of the lung was performed under general anaesthesia.[] Common presenting features include dyspnea, cough, low-grade fever, inspiratory crackles, and digital clubbing.[]
