Extensive studies on problematic and severe asthma performed in recent years have contributed to a substantial progress in explaining its patophysiology and the development of new treatment procedures. In spite of that progress, diagnosing and treatment of that disease continues to be a major clinical issue in allergologists’ practice. The aim of this paper is to summarize the clinical experience in the diagnosis and treatment from the point of view of an allergologist-practitioner, including the critical issues of the necessity to diversify treatment procedures according to individual cases and the requirement to manage co-existing diseases.
The impact of patients’ willingness to comply with doctor’s recommendations and the major results of the studies on problematic and severe asthma have been also reported.
