Abstract

A prospective study was carried out on 52 patients with allergic rhinitis, during March 1993-January 1995. This was to analyse the occurrence of bronchial asthma among them and to correlate the symptoms, signs and pathological findings of allergic rhinitis with that of bronchial asthma in those patients with both the disorders. The therapeutic benefits with regard to the symptoms of bronchial asthma in these patients were assessed after treatment of their nasal allergy for a period of at least four months. A definite aetio-clinico-pathological correlation could be established between allergic rhinitis and bronchial asthma and it could be concluded from the study that prompt attention to nasal symptoms in cases with co-existent bronchial asthma helps to a large extent in curbing the symptoms of the latter.
