Cystic lung disease in a young female patient
A case report of a female patient with Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome is presented to illustrate the salient features of this condition. The 45-yearold woman was relatively asymptomatic when the chest X-ray was done. She was found to have bilateral pulmonary cysts without any other significant abnormalities. A differential diagnosis is presented with a final diagnosis of the folliculin gene-associated, Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome.
