Melioidosis Pneumonia, Pulmonary Tuberculosis, Non-Tuberculous Mycobacteria in Bronchiectasis



As a pulmonologist, I have several particular concerns as follows:

  1. Endobronchial tuberculosis, a special entity of pulmonary tuberculosis, is challenging for clinical diagnosis and treatment.
  2. Melioidosis pneumonia is often severe and high mortality. Early diagnosis can contribute to reduce its morbidity.
  3. Bronchiectasis is increasing recently and NTM infection is an important issue because of both its causal association and its contribution to progression of bronchiectasis.
