- Adult-onset asthma
Understanding the key reason of adult-onset asthma and identifying unique phenotypes may help in better understanding of pathophysiology and treatment response, allowing people to better focus current and future treatments for individualised management. The asthma that de Read More
- Bronchitis (acute)
Bronchitis is an infection that causes irritation and inflammation in the lungs' major airways (bronchi). Bronchitis is divided into two types: acute and chronic. Chronic bronchitis is a long-term condition that can reoccur. Long-term stress, such as smoking, is usually the cause. Acute bronchitis is only temporary. Most cases resolve within a few days, but the cough may last for several weeks. The airways on each side of your windpipe connect Read More
- Chronic bronchitis
Chronic Bronchitis is a type of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). COPD is a lung infection and disease that can make breathing difficult and progressively worsen over time. Other than COPD, the most common type of COPD is emphysema. The majority of COPD patients have both emphysema and chronic bronchitis, but the severity of each varies from person to person.
Chronic bronchitis causes the bronchial tubes to become inflamed Read More
- Copd (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
COPD is a chronic lung disease that results in obstructed airflow from the lungs. Asthmatics have difficulty breathing, cough, cough up mucus (sputum), and wheeze. It is most commonly caused by long-term exposure to irritating particles or gases, such as cigarette smoke. COPD patients are more likely to develop heart disease, lung cancer, and a variety of other health problems. COPD is frequently caused by emphysema and chronic bronchitis. COP Read More
Emphysema is a lung disease that usually develops after a long period of smoking. Chronic bronchitis and emphysema are both types of lung disorders that are classified as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (COPD). COPD is an umbrella term for a group of lung disorders that make breathing difficult and worsen over time. The other major type of COPD is chronic bronchitis. The majority of COPD patients have both emphysema and chronic br Read More
Histoplasmosis is an infection caused by the fungus Histoplasma. The fungus can be found in the environment, particularly in soil with a high concentration of bird or bat droppings. Histoplasma is mostly found in the central and eastern United States, particularly in the Ohio and Mississippi River valleys. The fungus can also be found in parts of Central and South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia. Inhaling minute fungus spores in the air c Read More
- Juvenile laryngeal papilloma
Laryngeal Papilloma is a respiratory disease that obstructs airflow from the body. Juvenile Laryngeal Papilloma is a rare condition causing overgrowths in the passage from the nose to the lungs. It majorly occurs in the vocal cords of children and adults.
This condition is also known as recurrent respiratory Papilloma.
It is a rare disorder where tumors grow inside the respiratory tract of childre Read More
- Laryngeal papilloma
Laryngeal Papilloma is a rare medical condition in which non-cancerous tumors form along the aerodigestive tract. Laryngeal Papilloma grows inside the voice box, vocal cords, or the air passage from the nose to the lungs. The symptoms include breathing problems, difficulty swallowing, coughing, and hoarseness. Laryngeal Papilloma is a condition that has been researched in detail, but a cure is yet found.
- Pleurisy (pleuritis)
Pleurisy (pleuritis) is a health condition that occurs when the pleura, the thin layer of tissue that covers the lungs, becomes inflamed. Pleurisy (pleuritis) can be caused by a variety of things, including viruses, bacteria, and even lung cancer.
When the pleurae (membrane lining the thoracic cavity and the lungs) are swollen or inflamed, they may rub against each other, resulting in severe chest pain.

Pneumonia is an inflammatory infection that develops in the lungs. This disease fills up air sacs with fluid or pus that leads to cough with phlegm, fever, and difficulty in breathing.
We inhale air from the nose or mouth that reaches to lungs through Trachea, commonly known as the windpipe. Afterward, oxygen will automatically travel to air sacs through bronchi surrounded by the network of fine capillaries (thin and tiny blood Read More
- Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis
Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis is a lung disorder characterized by a build-up of proteins, lipids, and other substances (together known as surfactants) in the lungs' air sacs, or alveoli. The alveoli are the air-holding cells in the lungs. The exchange of gases between the lungs and the blood takes place here.
The alveoli become filled with a surfactant, they do not work properly, and breathing becomes difficult.
The c Read More
- Secondhand smoke
Secondhand smoke is the combination of smoke from the burning end of a cigarette and the smoke exhaled by the smoker. It is dangerous to both smokers and nonsmokers. Secondhand smoke contains more than 7000 chemicals, including 70 that can cause cancer.
Nonsmokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke are at an increased risk for lung cancer, heart disease, and other respiratory illnesses.
Pregnant women who are exposed Read More
