Background Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) is a complement protein involved in the innate immune system, and is associated with some chronic respiratory diseases including noncystic fibrosis (non-CF) bronchiectasis in adults. The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency of MBL2 gene polymorphisms in children with non-CF bronchiectasis, and the effect of MBL deficiency on disease severity.
