Extract

A 38-year-old man was referred to our University Hospital for evaluation of chronic cough with sputum production. During the last 15 years, he had experienced an increased expectoration of mucoid sputum that became purulent during infectious exacerbations, sometimes with bloody sputum. He denied fever, wheezes, chest pain, dyspnea, or weight loss. No other respiratory illness was present. His parents and siblings were normal. He works as a security officer. He has never smoked and denies regular alcohol intake.
