Pseudomonas stutzeri in the lung - request
Only a short comment to the article [Pseudomonas stutzeri in the lung from the 5.12.2010]. Dear expert team, I do not know if I have skipped something. But here it seems to involve apparently not yet a known CF but "only" cough with the finding of Pseudomonas. Or do I got something wrong? Would ...

X-ray or MRI

Treatment of a long-term germ colonization
I have been living with the CF diagnosis for a long time. Today, the doctors think that it is not CF but “only” COPD with bronchiectasia. I have several infections every year which are always treated with antibiotics in tablet form (for several years now mostly cefuroxime and moxifloxacin). ...
