INTRODUCCIÓN Afortunadamente el asma de control difícil (ACD) es muy infrecuente en la edad pediátrica. La mayoría de los niños con asma se controlan bien con los tratamientos actuales y cuando esto no ocurre se debe sospechar que el diagnóstico no es correcto o que no esta realizando adecuadamente el tratamiento o las medidas de control ambiental. Las actuales guías de buena práctica clínica1,2 establecen que el asma está bien controlada cuando no existen síntomas de la enfermedad…

Gúıa de diagnóstico y tratamiento del asma de control dif́ıcil en el niño
Children suffering from difficult-to-control asthma (DCA) require frequent appointments with their physician, complex treatment regimes and often admissions to hospital. Less than 5% of the asthmatic
Evaluación del impacto de un programa educativo en algunos factores emocionales de niños asmáticos y sus padres
As a result of the educational intervention, both patients and parents were able to correct their way of handling emotions and attitudes related with asthma, with the subsequent health improvement and a better control of the disease.


Home environment and severe asthma in adolescence: a population based case-control study
Either the study questionnaire failed to detect the avoidance or removal of feather bedding by allergic families or there is some undetermined hazard related to foam pillows that may represent remediable causes of childhood asthma.
Parental smoking and childhood asthma: longitudinal and case-control studies
The excess incidence of wheezing in smoking households appears to be largely non-atopic “wheezy bronchitis” with a relatively benign prognosis, but among children with established asthma, parental smoking is associated with more severe disease.
Allergic rhinitis and its impact on asthma.
This systematic review and meta-analyses confirmed the findings of a previous study published in “Rhinitis and Asthma: Causes and Prevention, 2nd Ed.” (2015) as well as new findings of “Mechanisms of Respiratory Disease and Allergology,” which confirmed the role of EMTs in the development of these diseases.
The ENFUMOSA cross-sectional European multicentre study of the clinical phenotype of chronic severe asthma
It is suggested that severe asthma might be a different form of asthma rather than an increase in asthma symptoms, and longitudinal studies and interventions are needed to define the mechanisms in severe asthma.
Effect of dampness at home in childhood on bronchial hyperreactivity in adolescence
Dampness at home is a significant risk factor for the persistence of bronchial hyperreactivity and respiratory symptoms in children with asthma and this risk is only partly explained by exposure to house dust mite antigen.
What do parents of wheezy children understand by “wheeze”?
Conceptual understandings of “wheeze” for parents of children with reported wheeze are different from epidemiology definitions, and parents' reports of acute wheezing in their children and clinicians' findings differ.
Evidence for different subgroups of difficult asthma in children
As a group, the asthmatic subjects demonstrated evidence of airway inflammation which responded to prednisolone, which suggests that different patterns of difficult asthma in children exist.
Difficult asthma: beyond the guidelines
The current guidelines for prophylactic treatment of paediatric asthma culminate in the addition of regular oral corticosteroids after a stepwise increase in treatment, and this article concentrates on children who have severe chronic background symptoms with acute exacerbations superimposed.
Persistent wheezing in very young children is associated with lower respiratory inflammation.
It is confirmed that inflammation is present in the airways of very young WC and may differ from patterns seen in adults with asthma.
An education program for parents of children with asthma: differences in attendance between smoking and nonsmoking parents.
There was a tendency for smoking parents to deny that their child had asthma (17% among families with two or more smokers; 9% among nonsmoking families).
