Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a widespread chronic disease, characterized by recurrent exacerbations, which are the main cause of health-seeking behavior, hospitalization, and deaths. Bacterial pathogens play a key role in the development of COPD exacerbations, which determines the advisability of the use of antimicrobial agents in this clinical situation. Presented article discusses the modern approaches to antibiotic treatment of COPD exacerbations.
