Abstract

This case details the decline in lung function due to bronchial webs in a lung transplant recipient. The decline occurred 2 years after transplantation and, despite therapy, the webs, which had an inflammatory component, became treatment resistant. We outline the pathological findings and management strategies used, discuss the evidence in the literature, and offer possible causes for these unusual clinical findings.
