    Among the possible mechanisms explaining the worsening of asthma due to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is the increase in bronchial hyperresponsiveness.

    Manganese belongs to a group of agents called "transitional metals" that are known to induce occupational asthma. How ever, well-documented cases of manganese-induced asthma have been lacking thus far. We have discussed a case of a 42-year-old non-smoking welder with work-related dyspnea. A...

    The diagnosis of occupational asthma (OA) and/or rhinitis needs to be confirmed by means of objective methods, because it is followed by important social and financial consequences. The aim of the study was to evaluate sensitivity and specificity of diagnostic methods as skin-prick tests (SPTs)...
