Cystic fibrosis. X-ray of the chest of a person suffering from cystic fibrosis, showing a network of opaque filaments in the lungs. Cystic fibrosis is a hereditary disease affecting the exocrine glands. The condition results in the production of thick mucus, which obstructs the bronchi, intestinal glands & pancreas. Severe respiratory infections are a common complication. Diagnosis is aided by the presence of excessive amounts of salt in the patient's sweat. Treatment involves minimising the effects of the disease by administering pancreatic enzymes, using bronchial physiotherapy & combating secondary infections.
