BASANTA BERGOLLA, Denenke; TORRES-CUEVAS, Boris Luis  e  ASTUDILLO REYES, Luis Alfonso. Mounier-Kuhn Syndrome. Rev cubana med [online]. 2021, vol.60, suppl.1, e1367.  Epub 01-Dez-2021. ISSN 0034-7523.

Mounier-Kuhn syndrome or tracheobroncomegaly is a rare clinical and radiological entity characterized by dilatation of the trachea and the main bronchi. It can be associated with saccular structures in the intercartilaginous membranes (tracheal diverticulosis), bronchiectasis, and recurrent respiratory infections. The forms of clinical presentation vary. It has a prevalence between 1-4.5% of the population and it occurs mainly in men, widely ranging ages between 20 and 50 years of age. We report the case of a 77-year-old male patient with recurrent lower respiratory infections since his youth. After performing imaging studies and bronchoscopy, he could be diagnosed with Mounier-Kunh syndrome. He immediately underwent antibiotic treatment and his evolution was satisfactory.
