A patient with a history of primary ciliary dyskinesia experiences daily persistent cough associated with purulent sputum production and dyspnea.

(A)          Chronic airway inflammation and bacterial colonization

(B)          Airway hypersensitivity and bronchoconstriction

(C)          Rupture of an apical subpleural bleb
