Where bronchiolar epithelium is completely replaced by alveolar cells, the air passage is known as the alveolar duct, and this terminates in a semicircular blind end called the alveolar sac, which is surrounded by four or more alveoli. Alveoli have mean diameters of 250 µm, and in the average male there are about 300 million alveoli with a gas-exchanging alveolar surface of approximately 143 m2. Progressive dilatation of air spaces occur after the age of 30 or 40 years, and alveolar ducts enlarge (alveolar duct ectasia) while adjacent alveoli appear flattened, although it is uncertain if there is actual destruction of alveolar septae.
Taken together, one working hypothesis is that certain TB lesions present microenvironments that are not supportive of growth, and that the bacilli in these microenvironments stop growing and become “phenotypically” drug resistant. Lesions are known to be dynamic structures. , 2009). That MTB resides in lesions deep inside human tissue might cause another problem, this time for the drugs. Can the drugs actually reach the bacilli inside the lesions at the concentrations required to exert their antimicrobial activity?
