Snoring nose
Hello I am the mother of a 2- months-old child, very worried; He has a persistent and severe pneumopathy at 1 month (following a rhinitis). His neonatal test is negative. He is followed by a pneumopaediatrician who had prescribed him a entoline and singulair and pulmicort treatment in the long court. Then as my son had no recurrence despite a therapeutic window, he stopped the treatments. Everything was OK until December. My son has a nasopharyngitis and since my son has a nose that snores every morning and sometimes in the evening at bedtime (he spends a good night) and he coughs to clear his throat after the baby bottles in the morning. I therefore consulted an ENT who found that his nasal mucosa was a little inflammed but no worries level ears or vegetations according to his pediatrician. The auscultation of the bronchi is dry and perfect but I find that since December without interruption it's nevertheless a too long time! I specify that his nose flows through the throat and that the secretions are translucent. He has no fever. I read on the web that chronic rhinosinusitis could be the symptom of cystic fibrosis: is this possible? How is the symptoms of an ENT disorder present in CF patients ? Thank you for all your answers Best regards

Blood exams
Hello, Our CF 20-month-old son had several blood tests. For several months (approximately one year), platelets are elevated (700-800G) as well as white blood cells (more specifically lymphocytes: 10G). Can you explain us what it means? What is the impact on the prognostic level? Thank you, cordially

Disease post transplantation
Hello, In a transplant patient, the transplanted tissue is healthy but it remains the genetic anomaly, so can the disease again damage his "new" lungs in the long term? Thank you

White secretions
Hello My 20-month-old baby has an inflammation of the nasal mucosa since December. His nose secretions only flow in his throat and do not come through his nose. On the advice of my pharmacist, I gave him a cure with "actisulfur"and the mucus came out white, whereas when I washed his nose essentially to the physiological serum, there was little or no secretions but it remained transparent. What is the significance of these white secretions? Is it the actisulfur that colors the mucus? cordially

Practical year medicine in case of CF
My son is 24 years old and studies (with empathy) medicine. In summer he will do his second state exam. His health status is relatively stable, on the other hand he is getting easliy ill in case of a high physical burden. He is actually very afarid of the practical year, especially concerning the part in internal medicine. He is especially afraid of the germ load, there. After the practical year he wants to do his specialization in any case in psychiatry, in order to avoid the health risk as far as possbile. My question is: how are the chances for a CF patient to find a place in internal medicine, where he can be relatively sure, that he does’t get new germs? Are there any possibilities here to find a „special program“ for CF patients? Where can he turn to in order to find this out?

Bacteriophages
Hello, I know, that the phage therapy is not licensed, yet. However, I wonder, how far research is concerning the fight against germs like MRSA, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylcoccus aureus. I myself have Pseudomonas and Staph. aureus colonization, my sister, also suffering from CF, has MRSA that is actually treated for the second time. Many thanks for your efforts.

Hope
Hello can we really have confidence in medicine? Must we really believe that one day cystic fibrosis will be cured? Is a treatment for Class 5 mutations underway? Best regards.
