All patients except one showed severe emphysema with or without bullous change. Bronchiectasis was detected in three patients by CT but only in two patients by chest radiography. A young patient developed bronchiectasis before symptomatic emphysema. We stress that patients with PiZZ are susceptible to bronchiectasis, and… CONTINUE READING
