Further Outpatient Care

Most patients continue as outpatients to monitor for changes in skin disease, pulmonary status, and musculoskeletal complaints. Frequent monitoring is recommended for patients with pneumatoceles or bronchiectasis, as these patients are at increased risk for secondary lung infections. Patients need to be aware that systemic signs of infection are often absent and to seek care if any infection is suspected.

Patients may benefit from referral to tertiary care centers well versed in the evaluation, monitoring and treatment of patients with this rare disorder.
