Abstract

An 8-year-old girl was referred to the pediatric chest disease department for pneumonia that did not respond to treatment. It was learned that the patient was diagnosed with nonallergic asthma at the age of 6 because of recurrent wheezing episodes and was on inhaled fluticasone and montelukast for 2 years. It was learned that the patient admitted to another hospital with complaints of cough, fever and respiratory distress 15 days before his last admission.
