Caption: Clubbing of fingers in cystic fibrosis. Close-up of the fingers of a 14-year-old girl that have changed shape ('clubbing') due to cystic fibrosis. This hereditary condition (also called mucoviscidosis) results in the bronchi being clogged with mucus, causing severe breathlessness. Over-production of mucus and chronic inflammation of the lungs is treated with physiotherapy and antibiotic drugs, but the condition progresses and is ultimately fatal.
