Hemoptysis

In cases not demonstrably tuberculous, hemoptysis may

require bronchoscopic examination to determine the origin. Varices or

unsuspected luetic, malignant, or tuberculous lesions may be found to

be the cause. It is mechanically easy to pack off one bronchus with

the author's packs (Fig. 96) introduced through the bronchoscope, but

the advisability of doing so requires further clinical tests.
