Revue médicale de Bruxelles
S Allard, G Casimir

Abstract

A 22-month-old girl is seen for chronic coughing, worsening at night, since a first episode of asthmatic bronchitis at the age of 16 months. The diagnoses retained are atopic status with cow-milk and house-dust mite hypersensitivities, and gastrooesophageal reflux. Therapy consisted of prokinetic, eviction of the offending allergens and inhalations of natrium cromoglycate. Symptoms disappeared completely and weight gain improved, demonstrating the multiple aspects to be considered in childhood asthma.
