Abstract

 

Bullous emphysema is a disease of the lung parenchyma, which causes a parenchimal destruction distally from terminal bronchioles, which is clinically manifested by dispnea. In several studies, the presense of an emphysema, which was detected by a low-grade CT screening for lung examination, was associated with an increased risk of lung cancer. The goal of our work was to describe the case of a patient with surgery of giant bulla. Two years later the patient was diagnosed with lung cancer. For early diagnosis of lung cancer, it’s recommended to have an annual low dose CT screening after bullectomy.

 

 

 

Key words:

giant bulla, CT (computerized tomography), lung cancer.

 

 

Sažetak

 

Bulozni emfizem je оboljenje plućnog parenhima kod kojeg dolazi do destrukcije disajnih puteva distalno od terminalnih bronhiola, koja se klinički manifestuje otežanim disanjem. Prisustvo emfizema koje je detektovano niskodoznim CT skriningom je povezano sa povećanim rizikom za razvoj karcinoma pluća. Cilj našeg rada je bio da se opiše jedan slučaj pacijenta, kod koga  je dve godine nakon bulektomije otkriven karcinom pluća. Usled povećane koincidence postojanja bula i karcinoma pluća, za ranu dijagnozu karcinoma pluća kod bulektomiranih pacijenata predlaže se godišnje praćenje bolesnika sa niskodoznim CT-om.

 

 

Ključne reči:

gigantska bula, CT, karcinom pluća.
