Allergic rhinitis and respiratory stridor

Maria Claudia Franca
OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to contribute to the discussion of differential diagnosis in paradoxical vocal fold movement (PVFM), a disorder frequently associated with episodes of breathing difficulty and stridor. Because of analogous respiratory symptoms, PVFM is often misdiagnosed as asthma. Additional evidence suggests the association of factors such as respiratory struggle during physical exertion, digestive reflux, and respiratory allergies with PVFM, particularly in athletes and young females...

Laryngomalacia is the most common cause of stridor in neonates and infants, where the soft cartilages and tissues surrounding the upper larynx collapse inward during respiration. On the other hand, acquired idiopathic laryngomalacia in adults is quite rare, but should be borne in mind for differential diagnosis of upper airway distress. Allergic factors may cause airway distress, but have not been highlighted previously as the background of laryngomalacia. In this report, we describe two patients with acquired idiopathic laryngomalacia with reference to allergic rhinitis and high serum levels of immunoglobulin E...

We describe a young adult with double aortic arch who for several years had experienced stridor during exercise. He had been given a diagnosis of exercise-induced asthma, also known as hyperventilation syndrome. Antiasthmatic drugs, including inhaled corticosteroids and a short-acting bronchodilator, in addition to antidepressants, did not improve his symptoms. He had a history of allergic rhinitis and a familial history of asthma, but no signs of asthma as assessed by expectorated sputum and airway responsiveness (Dmin)...

OBJECTIVES: To discover the relation between initial symptoms, triggers and durations of attacks of paradoxical vocal fold movement disorder (PVFMD) and concurrent laryngeal and respiratory diseases. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty one PVFMD patients (17 females, 4 males; mean age 50 year; range 31 to 72 years) were included in the study. Diagnosis of PVFMD was established when inspiratory and/or expiratory vocal cord adduction was seen during laryngostroboscopy. RESULTS: Laryngeal and respiratory diseases accompanying PVFMD were laryngopharyngeal reflux (n=15; 71%), asthma (n=11; 52%), allergic rhinitis (n=6; 28%), chronic sinusitis (n=1; 4%), right vocal cord paresis (n=1; 4%) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (n=2; 9%), (p=0...
