Bronchiectasis is a serious lung disease that damages the airways causing them to widen and become scarred, leading to difficulty breathing and a chronic cough. People of any age and gender can develop bronchiectasis, but in adulthood the disease affects more females than males, and in childhood, more males than females.
Bronchiectasis is often a secondary lung condition for many and it is particularly prevalent in those who have cystic fibrosis. These patients make up around half of the bronchiectasis cases in the U.S.
