Bronchoscopy showed stenosis in 46.4% and inflammation and/ or necrosis in 42.9%. Among 28 endobronchial Tbc, biopsy was performed in 25 cases and chronic granulomatous inflammation was 52%. Therapy with antituberculosis drug plus steroid was performed in 3 cases, among which 1 case showed obvious clinical and radiological improvement.
