Abstract

As the expected survival improves for patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), there is a growing population of adults with this disease. We describe a case of a 33-year-old woman with CF presenting with recurrent pancreatitis, malnutrition, borderline sweat test and respiratory diseases. The case report underlines the importance of diagnosis and management of CF in adults, and the important role played by the Family Physician in developing an adult care program.
