ORPHA:1928 Congenital lobar emphysema
:: This disease is usually not associated with any of the functional difficulties (activity limitations and/or participation restrictions) listed in the Orphanet Functioning Thesaurus, when the patient receives optimal standard care and management (specific and/or symptomatic management, prevention and prophylaxis, devices and aids, care and support).
Environmental factors may however require particular attention for an optimal management of this disease. This information is restricted to the consequences of the disease and its management on functioning and daily life. Clinical aspects (including fatigue, pain, impact of the disease on the patient’s psychological state) are described through other documents (i.e. Disability factsheets).
