Bronchocentricity

Last revised by Laura Meeker on 07 Apr 2022

Bronchocentricity (or bronchocentric distribution) describes a process in the lungs that is centered around bronchi (or bronchioles). The term centrilobular is commonly used for peribronchiolar disease. Because of the parallel relationship of bronchi and pulmonary arteries these processes are also related to the bronchovascular bundles (i.e. peribronchovascular) but predominate around bronchi rather than the arteries.
