 Bronchial asthma
Infectious exacerbations of asthma
Maciej Hałasa, Józef Hałasa

The involvement of infectious agents in asthma development and especially in its exacerbations has been observed for over 100 years. At first, bacteria have been attributed such important role in asthma, that separate form of this disease called infectious asthma was described. In the second half of the last century the opinion started to prevail, that viruses, but not the bacteria, have important input in development of asthma exacerbations, and possibly they play major role in pathogenesis of this disease. Recently, atypical bacteria have become the infectious agents of major interest in search for asthma exacerbating factors. Despite the long term research, we are still far away from full explanation of the dependency of asthma and its exacerbations on the infectious agents’ activity.
