Histopathology of bronchus

 

Chronic bronchitis is the commonest pathological condition of the bronchus and is defined as cough productive of sputum for at least three months in two consecutive years. It is part of a generic condition called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) of which bronchiectasis and asthma also affect the bronchi. Other COPD are emphysema (acinus) and bronchiolitis (bronchioles). Histological diagnosis is made by ascertaining the existence of more goblet cells (which produce mucus) than normal.

Lobar pneumonia is infection of an entire lobe of the lung usually through a lobar bronchus. Bronchopneumonia affects the entire lung parenchyma with lesions mainly in bronchi and bronchioles.
