COPD and endobronchial polyposis associated with hypogammaglobulinemia. Are proteolytic enzymes involved?

COPD and endobronchial polyposis associated with hypogammaglobulinemia. Are proteolytic enzymes involved?

Chest 82(1): 127-129

The present report describes a patient who had severe obstructive lung disease in association with acquired hypogammaglobulinemia. Evidence obtained by bronchoalveolar lavage is presented that suggests that his lung disease resulted from both a marked increase in elastase load and a reduction in protease inhibitor function.
