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 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 the left lung, towards the top of the lungs. Rare subpleural thickenings are seen ipsilaterally.
