Lung Function in Allergic Rhinitis
Abstract:Allergic rhinitis and asthma are traditionally viewed as distinctly different diseases. Allergic rhinitis affects the upper respiratory tract while asthma is a disorder of the lower respiratory tract. Evidence is presented to show that the characteristic physiologic abnormalities of asthma are present in many patients with allergic rhinitis despite the absence of bronchial symptoms. The discovery of these features in some patients with allergic rhinitis may prove to be useful in predicting which patients with rhinitis will develop asthma in the future.
