Cystic fibrosis remains a challenging disease, whether in terms of diagnosis and treatment points of view, or regarding its multifaceted complications. Besides lung disease, the condition that dictates the disease outcome, more other comorbidities like liver disease and diabetes arise, complicating disease management, especially in children.
With the new use of modulators, the life expectancy is likely to upsurge. However, but further studies would be necessary in order to provide the best care for CF children. With increased life expectancy, more complications occur and several decisions must be taken in clinical practice.
As monitoring the disease is key to obtaining satisfactory outcome, new approaches like lung ultrasound, liver elastography or continuous glycemia monitoring requires appropriate evaluation and management. Deliver individual care to CF children is achievable and possible with the adaptation of new techniques and treatments to every patient.
This Issue addresses the cystic fibrosis diagnosis, monitoring and management of disease’s complications like lung disease exacerbations, and their relation to other non-respiratory complications like liver disease, diabetes, bone disease, endocrine dysfunctions and new treatments.
