tracheal tuberculosis

Wednesday 18 March 2009

Endobronchial, endotracheal, and laryngeal tuberculosis may develop when infective material is spread either through lymphatic channels or from expectorated infectious material. The mucosal lining may be studded with minute granulomatous lesions, sometimes apparent only on microscopic examination.
