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.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
