About the book
Bronchial tree diseases are no different than lung disease. They may be clinically different from an atypical clinical picture related to lung parenchyma diseases but are treated with the same therapeutic protocol. Endobronchial spread of pulmonary infections, as well as tumors, cause symptoms different from those of classical pulmonary infections. Endobronchial tumors are a common cause of bronchiectasis, and again, bronchiectasis can occur for other reasons. Endobronchial tuberculosis is also a specific particularly imaging entity. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is an increasingly common cause of the disease in both young and adult population, as a cause of air pollution, and in adults and in smokers or ex-smokers. This latter would also be interesting to analyze at the subcellular level. All suggested and new proposed chapters will be accepted in consideration for the publication in this book.
I am thankful for the future authors and co-authors who will participate in preparation of this book.
