Abstract


Mounier-Kuhn syndrome (MKS) is a rare clinical and radiologic entity characterized by pathologic dilatation of the trachea and bronchi. The etiology of this disorder is uncertain and the clinical presentation is variable. The diagnosis is usually made on the basis of the characteristic CT scan findings. We report one such case in a 44-year-old man presenting with recurrent lower respiratory tract infections.
