UK guidelines have been issued on how to manage non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis, a condition involving excess mucus and inflammation in the lungs, for the first time.
The British Thoracic Society document covers areas including how to identify and treat underlying causes of non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis and spot signs of the condition in children.
It also looks at what blood and immunological tests should be carried out to clinically assess sufferers.
