Introduction: Epidemiological studies have revealed that asthma and rhinitis frequently coexist and severity of nasal symptoms is associated with asthma severity. But it has been unclear what kind of nasal symptom is related to asthma severity.
Aim: The aim of the present study is to investigate the relationship between specific rhinitis symptom and control status of asthma.
Method: One hundred and nineteen asthma patients with specific serum IgE were recruited. The Self Assessment of Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma (SACRA) questionnaire, which GINA and ARIA Japan committees developed, was used for the diagnosis and assessment of severity by visual analogue scale (VAS). SACRA also ask specific rhinitis symptoms defined in ARIA, including rhinorrhea, nasal obstruction, sneezing, itchy nose, and conjunctivitis.
Conclusions: Nasal obstruction was most related to insufficient control of asthma suggesting the common underlying pathway between nasal obstruction and poor asthma control. Asking and treating nasal obstruction in daily practice might be potentially important to improve asthma control.
