Yellow nail syndrome (pulmonary manifestations)

Pulmonary manifestations of yellow nail syndrome are principally centered around

  • chronic cough
  • effects for recurrent lung infections (bronchiectasis) and
  • pleural effusions.

The role of proposed lymphatic impairment could account for the development of pleural effusions and smooth interlobular septal thickening. Very rarely, a diffuse panbronchiolitis like picture has also been described 4.
