ABSTRACT

Here we describe the characteristic features of several diseases, such as rhinitis, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA), and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). ABPA and EGPA are formally known as Churg-Strauss syndrome. Both diseases clinically present asthma symptoms and eosinophilia and should be differentially diagnosed from bronchial asthma. Clinicians carefully take care of patients with asthma if complicated with rhinitis and GERD, since these diseases impact on asthma.
