Abstract

Asthma responds to conventional therapy in the majority of patients. However, attention has recently focused on the 1 to 15% of asthmatics who are thought to manifest severe asthma, which responds poorly to commonly used regimens. In this review, current knowledge about the pathogenesis of severe asthma is reviewed and several distinct clinical syndromes of severe asthma are discussed.
