tracheobronchitis: a disease in humans or only dogs?



I know a doctor who diagnoses patients with tracheobronchitis. It sounds very impressive since you
don't hear it elsewhere. It reminds me of another great doctor who likes to throw around the word
"bronchiectasis," which is definitely a human condition, but not so common that you should hear it
used every single day. A search on WebMD for "tracheobronchitis" turns up nothing. A search on
Google reveals that this is a disease of dogs, also known as "kennel cough." Has anyone else heard
of this disease in humans? Is it a creative invention of this particular internist or maybe an
outdated term? Thanks for any info. Just curious since it was applied to a family member recently.
