Bottom Line: The etiology of this disorder is uncertain and the clinical presentation is variable.The diagnosis is usually made on the basis of the characteristic CT scan findings.We report a case in a 21-year-old man presenting with recurrent lower respiratory tract infections.

ABSTRACT
Tracheobronchomegaly or Mounier-Kuhn syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by marked dilatation of the trachea and main bronchi, bronchiectasis, and recurrent respiratory tract infections. The etiology of this disorder is uncertain and the clinical presentation is variable. The diagnosis is usually made on the basis of the characteristic CT scan findings. We report a case in a 21-year-old man presenting with recurrent lower respiratory tract infections.

Axial high-resolution CT images show marked dilatation of the trachea (arrow in A), posterior tracheal diverticula (arrow in B), dilatation of the main bronchi (arrows in C), multiple diverticula (arrowheads in C), and bilateral cystic bronchiectasis (D)

Figure 0002: Axial high-resolution CT images show marked dilatation of the trachea (arrow in A), posterior tracheal diverticula (arrow in B), dilatation of the main bronchi (arrows in C), multiple diverticula (arrowheads in C), and bilateral cystic bronchiectasis (D)

Mentions: CT scan of the chest was performed. The scannogram [Figure 1] showed tracheobronchomegaly. The trachea was grossly dilated, with a diameter of 4.1 cm [Figures 2A and B], while the right and left main bronchi had diameters of 2.6 and 2.9 cm [Figure 2C], respectively. Multiple diverticula and areas of scalloping were seen between the cartilaginous rings in the trachea and right and left main bronchi [Figures 2A and B]. Cystic bronchiectasis was seen in the lung parenchyma bilaterally [Figure 2D].
