Free standing bronchiectasis

Last revised by Dr Henry Knipe on 26 Apr 2022

Free-standing bronchiectasis or non-traction bronchiectasis is a descriptive term for bronchiectasis that is not related to regional fibrotic effects (e.g. traction bronchiectasis). Amongst other causes, this form may occur in recurrent chronic infective-inflammatory states such as in those with immunodeficiency, e.g. common variable immune deficiency 3.
