The never-ending challenge of chronic cough in adults
TLDR
This review summarizes the current evidence on the aetiology and the diagnostic difficulties of chronic cough in adults, and provides an algorithmic approach, along with practical tips, for its management by the busy practicing clinician.
Athletes and cough (focus on chronic cough) -currents of recent study-
TLDR
The treatment for cough variant asthma (CVA) is basically composed of inhaled cortico‑ steroids and β2‑stimulants which is similar to the medications for asthma.
Chronic Cough: Evaluation and Management.
TLDR
Evaluated patients with refractory chronic cough may warrant referral to a pulmonologist or otolaryngologist in addition to a trial of gabapentin, pregabalin, and/or speech therapy.
Airway disorders associated with chronic cough
TLDR
Most patients with chronic cough can be managed and cured by treatment of these underlying causes of chronic cough, however, in some patients, effective control of cough may require not only controlling underlying diseases but also desensitization of cough pathways.
The Spectrum of Non-asthmatic Airway Diseases Contributing to Cough in the Adult
TLDR
Supportive measures are recommended for acute bronchitis and antibiotic use is discouraged, and antibiotics, mucus clearance measures, and bronchodilators are all supportive.
Eosinophilic airway disorders associated with chronic cough.
Understanding the Impact of Chronic Cough on the Quality of Life in the General Population
  • H. Jin, C. Kim
  • Medicine

  • 2020
TLDR
The concept of chronic cough is now changing from a consequent symptom due to underlying diseases to a clinical entity called cough hypersensitivity syndrome (CHS), which usually shows a long-lasting course that is refractory to currently available treatments.
Chronic cough and OSA: a new association?
  • K. Sundar, S. Daly
  • Medicine
    Journal of clinical sleep medicine : JCSM : official publication of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine
  • 2011
TLDR
Mechanisms by which nocturnal continuous positive airway therapy resolves cough by improving underlying airway inflammation secondary to OSA are explored and impacts upon GERD, CVA, and UACS are explored.

Airway inflammation as an assessment of chronic nonproductive cough.
TLDR
It is suggested that a chronic nonproductive cough as an isolated symptom is associated with airway inflammation due to eosinophil and lymphocyte infiltration and the causes of the chronic non productive cough were eOSinophilic bronchitis, cough-variant asthma, and lymphocytic Bronchitis.
Chronic cough in adults with interstitial lung disease
TLDR
Clinicians should be cautious when ascribing chronic cough to interstitial lung disease without first completely evaluating for other possible causes of cough, and therapy, when available, should be directed at the specific underlying diagnosis.

Induced sputum inflammatory mediator concentrations in chronic cough.
TLDR
The findings support the view that there is release of inflammatory and tussive mediators in patients with chronic cough and suggest that there might be similarities in the mechanism of cough in a diverse range of conditions.
Airway inflammation in nonasthmatic subjects with chronic cough.
TLDR
The possibility that chronic cough in nonasthmatic subjects is associated with airway inflammation is evaluated, and if this is so, what the relationship between this inflammation and the possible etiology of cough might be, as well as its response to inhaled steroids is evaluated.
A systematic evaluation of mechanisms in chronic cough.
TLDR
It is concluded that chronic cough is a nonspecific symptom that is associated with several apparently unrelated mechanisms, including UAHR, somatization, BHR, and eosinophilic bronchitis.
Eosinophilic bronchitis is an important cause of chronic cough.
TLDR
It is concluded that eosinophilic bronchitis is a common cause of chronic cough, and that sputum induction is important in the investigation of cough.
The aetiology of chronic cough: a review of current theories for the otorhinolaryngologist.
TLDR
Examination of the available evidence suggests that mechanical stimulation of the pharynx by mucus is not an adequate theory for the production of cough, and eosinophil and mast cell mediation appear a likely mechanism.
Cough : causes, mechanisms, and therapy
TLDR
This work focuses on the clinical and pathophysiological challenge of cough, and current and potential future antitussive therapies for the treatment of cough.
