Influence of a fibrothorax on the flow/volume curve (with 1 color plate)

Bolliger C.T. ; De Kock M.A. (1988)


Rigidity of the thorax with relatively 'normal' lungs can show typical changes in the flow/volume curve that could be diagnostic. These changes caused by 'entrapment' of the lungs are described and illustrated by means of a case report of a patient with bilateral fibrothorax caused by bilateral tuberculous pleural effusions.
