Abstract

A traqueobroncomegalia é uma rara entidade de etiologia incerta, caracterizada por dilatação marcante da traquéia e brônquios principais, bronquiectasias e infecções recorrentes do trato respiratório inferior. Sua apresentação clínica é inespecífica, sendo o diagnóstico realizado por métodos de imagem. Relata-se, neste trabalho, um caso de tal enfermidade, cujo diagnóstico confirmou-se por radiografia simples do tórax e por tomografia computadorizada.<br>Tracheobronchomegaly is a rare condition of uncertain etiology characterized by marked dilatation of the trachea and main bronchi, bronchiectasis and recurrent respiratory tract infections. Clinical presentation is nonspecific and the diagnosis is usually made by imaging methods. We report a case of a patient with tracheobronchomegaly.
