    Cough is a major symptom of asthma. However, "cough variant asthma" (CVA) defines a different group of asthmatics rather than asthmatics who cough. CVA has higher sensitivity in cough reflex and have lower threshold for cough response to bronchoconstriction. Pathological findings in CVA are not...
