Bronchiectasis in Childhood (Including PBB)

Vikas Goyal, Anne B. Chang, Julie M. Marchant

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Chronic wet cough in children is a common condition for which patients seek medical attention and there are many etiologies. This article will discuss two pediatric causes: protracted bacterial bronchitis, one of the commonest causes, and bronchiectasis, one of the most serious. They are discussed together as it has been proposed that these conditions represent different ends of a spectrum of endobronchial suppuration and understanding the pathobiology of this will aid in early intervention and management. This article further highlights latest evidence-based updates of both conditions with discussion of pathogenesis, diagnosis and management.
