Yes: The most common cause of lung bulla is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease but some other conditions associated with lung bullae are alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, Marfan syndrome, Ehler-Danlos syndrome, cocaine smoking, sarcoidosis, HIV infection, and intravenous drug abuse.Regardless lung bullae are abnormal.
