Background: The Mounier-Kuhn Syndrome is a congenital disease characterized by abnormal dilation of the trachea and main bronchi. The symptoms are non-specific; some patients present recurrent respiratory infections and bronchiectasis.
Case Report: We describe a black woman with clinical and radiology diagnosis of this Syndrome, and offer a review of its radiology finding.
Conclusions: The Mounier-Kuhn Syndrome, despite its rarity, is probably unwell diagnosticated, and may always be considered as an important differential diagnosis of chronic and recurrent pulmonary infections.
