Abstract

Asthma is a common chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways, characterized by paroxysmal narrowing of the bronchial airways due to inflammation of the bronchi and contraction of the bronchial smooth muscle. Common -clinical manifestations include wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. Prognosis is generally good with proper control of asthma with step-down therapy. However, recognition of atypical presentations of asthma is vital in any clinical practice in order to improve patient outcomes.
