The community composition of bronchial tree is reported to be similar with the upper airways, but the biomass is less, indicating that aspiration from the upper airways may be the source of lung microbiome.[sup][25],[26],[27] Charlson et al .[sup][25] showed that there were similarities in the microbiologic pattern in the oropharynx and bronchial tree, indicating that there is no unique lung microbiome.

The following mechanisms are considered as having for BA development in pathology of nose and its paranasal cavities: 1) development of inflammatory processes in the lungs while penetration of different allergen substances from pathologically changed paranasal cavities; 2) increased blockade of [beta]-adrenergic receptors resulting in increase of the bronchial tree irritability; 3) reflector bronchospasm due to increase in anxiety of parasympathetic nervous system (Ussel, 2001).
Papillomas are uncommon benign tumors of the lower bronchial tree. According to the World Health Organization, they are classified as squamous, glandular, or mixed (with squamous and glandular elements).
