Abstract

Pathologic correlations and examination of expectorated sputum have suggested that chronic bronchitis is an inflammatory disorder of the airways. Bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage provide a means for sampling airway epithelial lining fluid. Application of bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage to a group of patients with chronic bronchitis confirms the association of airways inflammation and chronic bronchitis.
