Core Tip Vitamin D deficiency seems to be associated with respiratory health. Herein, we present the experimental and epidemiological data that imply a role of vitamin D deficiency in the development of cystic fibrosis (CF) and non-CF bronchiectasis. Numerous experimental data provide insight to the mechanism by which vitamin D modulates immunity, and therefore its deficiency may enhance the susceptibility to infectious diseases and affect the control of inflammation process. Epidemiological data provide evidence for the association of vitamin D deficiency and bronchiectasis, either directly or indirectly, through its relation with the risk for respiratory tract infections. This knowledge is of interest for the pediatrician as vitamin D supplementation may be a future candidate therapeutic option for bronchiectasis.
