A male patient 49 years old, a long-term smoker, with intense productive cough, followed by expectoration of bloodless sputum. He was referred for bacteriological analysis of the sputum and a lung CT scanner to confirm the diagnosis of the disease. Bacteriological analysis of sputum confirmed the existence of Mycobacterium avium infection. On this CT scan, axial tomogram, lung window, we see reduced transparency of the lung parenchyma, the dominance of the upper parts of the lungs in the form of blur, dirty rough parenchyma, similar to "ground glass" opacified, with a field of honeycomb permanently dilated and thick-walled bronchi - bronchiectasis, localized in S1 on the right.
