AB  - RATIONALE: The classic definition of bronchiectasis is of permanent bronchial
      dilatation. Therefore, bronchiectasis is generally considered irreversible in the
      adult population. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 27-year-old woman presented to an
      affiliated hospital with a 1-year history of productive cough. DIAGNOSIS:
      Bronchiectasis. INTERVENTIONS: The patient was treated with cephalosporin and a
      mucus clearance regimen for 6 days and then with Chinese herbs for 3 months.
      OUTCOMES: Reversible bronchial dilatation was evidenced by sequential chest
      high-resolution computed tomography 6 months later. CONCLUSION: The current
      report demonstrated that, although rare in adult, bronchial dilatation might
      resolve completely in such a short period if receiving adequate regimens, for
      example, Chinese herbs.
