Clinical Information

  • Bronchomalacia-. a congenital or acquired condition of underdeveloped or degeneration of cartilage in the bronchi. this results in a floppy bronchial wall making patency difficult to maintain. it is characterized by wheezing and difficult breathing.
  • Bronchomalacia-. a congenital or acquired abnormality of the wall of the bronchi. in congenital cases, there is lack of rigidity in the cartilage of the bronchial wall. in acquired cases, the cartilage of the bronchial wall is degenerated, secondary to tracheostomy or presence of a breathing tube. symptoms include noisy breathing and wheezing.
  • Tracheobronchomalacia-. a rare congenital or acquired disorder characterized by excessive collapsibility of the trachea and major bronchi resulting in breathing problems. it is caused by damage to the tracheobronchial cartilage.

Inclusion Terms

Inclusion Terms
These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
  • Broncholithiasis
  • Calcification of bronchus
  • Stenosis of bronchus
  • Tracheobronchial collapse
  • Tracheobronchial dyskinesia
  • Ulcer of bronchus

Index to Diseases and Injuries References

The following annotation back-references for this diagnosis code are found in the injuries and diseases index. The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10-CM code(s).

Patient Education

Bronchial Disorders

When you breathe in, the air travels down through your trachea (windpipe). It then goes through two tubes to your lungs. These tubes are your bronchi. Bronchial disorders can make it hard for you to breathe.

The most common problem with the bronchi is bronchitis, an inflammation of the tubes. It can be acute or chronic. Other problems include:

  • Bronchiectasis - a condition in which damage to the airways causes them to widen and become flabby and scarred
  • Exercise-induced bronchospasm - a breathing problem that happens when your airways shrink while you are exercising
  • Bronchiolitis - an inflammation of the small airways that branch off from the bronchi
  • Bronchopulmonary dysplasia - a chronic lung condition in infants, most often premature infants
