    Background and aims: Mutations of SLC26A4 cause Pendred syndrome, an autosomal recessive disorder comprising goitre and deafness with enlarged vestibular aqueducts (EVA). Recent studies in mouse models implicate Slc26a4 in the pathogenesis of asthma and hypertension. We hypothesise that asthma...
