What is Plastic Bronchitis:
Plastic Bronchitis is a Rare Respiratory condition that is caused by a Lymphatic Flow disorder. The lymph flows into the airways forming molds/casts of the airways. These casts are like a rubbery like texture, (where Plastic Bronchitis gets it's name), and block the airway making it very difficult to breath. Oxygen is not able to get in causing hypoxia, and the person with PB coughs violently to get the cast out. Sometimes, they are not able to cough the cast out and a procedure has to be preformed to get the cast out. This condition affects both Children and Adults.
To find a cause and a cure for PB and help all who are suffering from this disease.
