PMID:  6379586     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Although bronchiectasis is relatively uncommon, it should be considered in a child with any of the following findings that persist: infiltrate on x-ray cough, purulent sputum, crackles or harsh breath sounds on auscultation of the chest, or hemoptysis. It is very likely that a pediatrician will encounter one or more children with this condition. This article deals with the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of bronchiectasis in childhood.
