The upper and lower respiratory tract have similar structure - this is a factsupporting the above hypothesis. The treatment of atopic rhinitis is successful in asthma because these two diseases frequently coexist. The authors present very fresh data and current opinions on the importance of atopic rhinitis in patient with asthma. They offer instructions and algorithms for diagnosing and treatment of asthma with atopic rhinitis and bronchial hypersensitivity.
