In some instances, the collapsibility of the trachea can be related to an increased muscle-to-cartilage ratio within the tracheal wall5. , in tracheoesophageal fistula), or from external distortion. For example, anterior pressure on the cartilage can cause the posterior tips to separate and the posterior tracheal membrane to broaden (Figure 2-18). The smooth muscle would then comprise a greater percentage of the tracheal circumference. Tracheal compliance would increase and the tracheal membrane would be prone to invaginate with changes in transmural pressure (Figure 2-21).

PPD (purified protein derivative) intradermal testing for tuberculosis exposure and or infection is an important part of the evaluation for any chronic pneumonia, parenchymal lesion, or lymphadenopathy.
