Bronchiectasis and Mycobacterium avium infection

A male patient 71 years old, a long-term smoker, with intense productive cough, followed by expectoration of bloodless sputum. He suffers from continuous shortness of breath, typically associated with smoking. Bacteriological analysis of his 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 middle parts of the lungs in the form of blur, dirty rough parenchyma, similar to "ground glass" opacified, with a dilated and thick-walled bronchi of larger diameter - bronchiectasis, localized bilaterally in the middle pulmonary fields, predominantly left. These dilated bronchi show thick walls with fibrosis - "finger in glove" sign.
