VALDIVIES YUSBIEL, José León; SANCHEZ DE LA OSA, Reinaldo B.  y  OSES HERRERA, Liliana. Lady Windermere Syndrome as a cause of chronic cough. Report of a case. Rev. Fac. Med. (Méx.) [online]. 2016, vol.59, n.1, pp.21-24. ISSN 2448-4865.

The nontuberculous mycobacteria are rarely recognized today in the world, being increased their prevalence about to departure of their suspicion in chronic illnesses such as inmunocompromised patients and cystic fibrosis. We present a case with diagnosis of syndrome of Lady Windermere about to departure of a square of chronic cough. Computed tomography was performed where bilateral bronchiectasis is observed in the left lingual segment and right upper lobe. In the Bronchoscopy was isolated complex Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare. The lack of suspicion of nontuberculous mycobacteria in patient without risk factors, with a square of chronic cough leads to the delay in the diagnosis and the patient’s clinical deterioration.

Palabras llave : bronchiectasis; Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare complex; Lady Windermere Syndrome; chronic cough.
