R.R is a 3 year old girl presented to my clinic for evaluation of recurrent respiratory symptoms with cough, breathing difficulty and wheeze since 9 month of age. She had 16 previous admissions for a diagnosis of “Pneumonia with Reactive Air Ways Disease, RAD”. She is treated with antibiotics, systemic steroid and bronchodilators in each attack nearly every 2 months. However, she has never been on any controller medication and her parents were frequently reassured that this will go away as she gets older.
