    Recurrent wheezing is common in young infants and toddlers with 27% of all children having at least one wheezing episode by the age of 9 years. The initial wheezing episodes in young children often are linked to respiratory infections due to viral pathogens such as respiratory syncytial virus,...

    The article reflects upon wheezing in children and its possible causes. The author explores the causes of a first episode of wheezing, bronchiolitis, and episodic and unremitting wheezing. He discusses a study by Plint and colleagues, published in this issue, and criticizes its flaws, such as...

    Asthma comprises a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by airway inflammation, airway obstruction, and airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR). Airway inflammation, which induces AHR and recurrence of asthma, is the main pathophysiology of asthma. The fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO)...

    Background: Wheezing disorders in childhood vary widely in clinical presentation and disease course. During the last years, several ways to classify wheezing children into different disease phenotypes have been proposed and are increasingly used for clinical guidance, but validation of these...

    Background Studies exploring the relationship between prenatal vitamin D exposure and childhood asthma have yielded conflicting results. Higher vitamin D intake during pregnancy has been shown to lower the risk of childhood wheeze, yet a study of maternal late-pregnancy serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D...
