LUNG – Cystic fibrosis (mucoviscidosis)

This specimen shows both lungs, cut to display gross bronchiectasis involving all lobes but, perhaps most obvious in the right upper lobe. Many of the bronchi contain muco-purulent material. The right lower lobe gives the visual impression of consolidation. The hilar lymph nodes seen both anteriorly and posteriorly are grossly enlarged, likely due to reactive hyperplasia.
