Answer

Allergic asthma

For patients with wheezing, after a carefully obtained history, the following conditions must be excluded:

  • Medical conditions involving the lung that manifest with symptoms suggestive of asthma

  • Syndromes characterized by abnormal breathing in which the lungs are structurally normal

  • Cases of local airway obstruction that manifest with wheezing that is audible to the patient or can be heard on examination
