Abstract

Aim: to assess frequence and clinical relevance of tuberculosis adenobronchial fistulas (TABF) and to evaluate the role of surgical bronchoscopy associated with antimicrobical chemiotherapy. Methods: 21 cases of TABF, admitted at the Department of Infectious Disease, Bambino Gesù Children Hospital in Rome, befween 1980 and 1995, were studied. Clinical diagnosis was confirmed by bronchial endoscopy. Results: incidence of TABF is 22,5 % of pulmonary TBC. All patiens were treated with association of medical therapy and endobronchial local surgical treatment. Conclusions: TABF is a complication of pediatric pulmonary TBC. We suggest to control clinical and radiological parameters to submit the patients to a diagnostic and therapeutic bronchoscopy.
