Abstract

Bronchiectasis is a chronic condition with a prevalence continuously on the rise. Bronchiectasis have a considerable impact on morbidity, healthcare utilization and quality of life. Pulmonary function tests, microbiological variables and exacerbation rate are useful in the initial and follow-up evaluation. Scores that combine those variables with chest CT findings have been established to predict hospitalizations and mortality. Assessment of health-related quality of life cannot rely on physiological variables measurement. Dedicated questionnaires are therefore needed for that purpose.
