Extract

Background: Serum albumin level is one of the prgnostic factors in chronic respiratory diseases. Thus, we aimed to evaluate the usefulness and prognostic significance of serum albumin in patients with NCFB.

Methods: The medical records of 107 patients with NCFB were retrospectively reviewed. Eligible subjects were categorized into low (n=13) and normal (n=94) serum albumin group and clinical characteristics were compared. The performances of serum albumin, bronchiectasis severity index (BSI), and FACED score in predicting respiratory hospitalization were compared. Finally, predicting factors of respiratory hospitalization were analyzed.
