Abstract

We report on a patient with occupational asthma caused by iroko. BPT induced an early and late response with a long recovery period, and absence of inhibition on pretreatment with cromoglycate and beclomethasone. Three months after leaving his job, the patient was symptom-free, but non-specific bronchial hyperreactivity was still demonstrated.
