    This paper reports 10 year follow up data on four patients who underwent mechanical dilatation of multiple bronchial stenoses (sarcoidosis two cases, berylliosis one case, idiopathic stenoses one case). Two patients enjoyed symptomatic and physiological improvement during the nine years before they presented with a recurrence of stenosis. The other two had recurrences sooner, and improved only slightly after they had started prednisolone treatment.
