The incidence of bronchiectasis has declined markedly in developed countries with improvement in health care, antibiotics, vaccines and control of tuberculosis (<0.6/1000 persons), but is still high in developing countries. Early complete resection of affected lung segment remains the mainstay of treatment as it causes maximum improvement in symptoms, minimum deterioration of lung function and prevents disease progression. Surgery is indicated in unsuccessful medical treatment and complications of bronchiectasis e.g. haemoptysis, lung abscess, lung masses and pneumothorax. Bronchiectasis with multiple broncholithiasis is a very rare presentation and very few cases have been reported in literature so far. This article presents here, the symptoms and signs, operative and perioperative management and literature review of a case of bronchiectasis with multiple bronchial stones.
