Bronchiectasis and Mycobacterium avium infection

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 coloured CT scan, axial tomogram, lung window, we see reduced transparency of the lung parenchyma in the form of blur, dirty rough parenchyma, similar to "ground glass" opacified, with permanently dilated and thick-walled bronchi - bronchiectasis, localized in left lung in S1+2 and S3 segment. All dilated bronchi show thick walls along with fibrosis fields that are dominant along the edge of the aorta in S1 - "finger in glove" sign. Rare subpleural thickenings are seen bilaterally.
