    Abstract

    An unusual case of endobronchial polyposis associated with extensive bronchiectasis in the context of cystic fibrosis (CF) has been described.

    A 15-yr-old female patient with CF underwent partial pneumonectomy for extensive bronchiectasis and frequent infective pulmonary exacerbations.

    Cylindrical bronchiectasis with associated purulent bronchitis and bronchiolitis, together with inflammatory polyposis, was noted in the resected lung.

    To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of multiple endobronchial polyposis and may represent a rare complication of bronchiectasis in a patient with cystic fibrosis. On-going infection and the cellular composition of the polyps are discussed in relation to their possible aetiological relevance and relationship to upper respiratory tract polyps.
