BACKGROUND Viral upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) have been correlated with the onset of asthma attacks in children and viral identification was reported in 14-49 % of nasal samples. The aim of the present study was to detect influenza, parainfluenza, adenovirus and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) in older children during acute asthma attacks. METHODS A total of 104 children (2-14 years) were included in four groups: group I: asthmatics with acute attack and URTI; group II… CONTINUE READING

AsthmaNo subtypeCoughing
A diagnosis of URTI was considered when ( 3 symptoms ( cough and/or sneeze , nasal obstruction , hypertrophy of turbinates , pain and/or retropharynx hyperemia , headache and fever ) in asthmatics and at least 2 symptoms in non - asthmatics were present , starting within 7 days .

Viral identification rates were higher in the asthmatic groups : 13.9 % in group I , 11.1 % in group II ; 2.8 % in group III and 0 in group IV .
The rate of viral identification was higher in asthmatic children , whether symptomatic or not , suggesting a possible susceptibility to viral infections .
