Inflammation of the lining membrane of the bronchial tubes. This is always more or less present in cases of pulmonary catarrh; and is accompanied by cough, mucous expectoration, dyspnoea, and more or less uneasiness in breathing. The acute form is accompanied with all the signs of internal inflammation, and requires the employment of antiphlogistics followed by revulsives. The chronic form, Tussis seni'lis, Catar'rhus seni'lis, Rheuma catarrha'le, Peripneumo'nia notha, Bronchorvhoe'a acu'ta, Winter Cough, Chronic Catarrh, may be confounded with phthisis; from which it must be distinguished mainly by the absence of hectic fever and of the physical signs that are characteristic of the latter, as well as by the nature of the expectoration, which is generally mucous, although at times muco-purulent. When the expectoration is little or none, the bronchitis is said to be dry, dry catarrh, (F.) Catarrhe Sec. When bronchitis affects the smaller tubes, it is termed capil'lary bronchi'tis, bronchi'tis capilla'ris, bronchoc'ace infanti'lis[?], and is often fatal to children. Vesic'ular bronchitis is the term proposed by M.M. Rilliet and Barthez for the vesicular pneumonia of children.
