Bronchiectasis is a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, defined as permanent abnormal dilation of bronchi due to vicious cycle of transmural
infection and inflammation. Bronchiectasis is generally characterized by cough, wheeze, and dyspnea. Pathogens responsible for bronchiectasis
include pathogens Haemophilus influenzae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, and nontuberculous
mycobacteria. Empirical antibiotic therapy and other drugs are used empirically in the management of bronchiectasis.Here, we discuss a case of
infectious exacerbation of bronchiectasis successfully treated with an empirical use of ceftriaxone/sulbactam/disodium edetate-1034.
Keywords: Bronchiectasis, Eloresâ„¢, Ceftriaxone/sulbactam/disodium edetate-1034, Disodium edetate, Antibiotic resistance.
