Abstract

Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction is transient narrowing of the airways following strenuous exercise. It is the earliest sign of asthma and the last to resolve. EIB is found in 90 % of asthmatics and reflects underlying control of asthma. This review is focused on the contemporary developments in pediatric EIB: the epidemiology, pathogenesis, presentation, diagnosis and management. Proper diagnosis by objective pulmonary function and/or exercise challenge and therapy should allow the pediatric asthmatic to enjoy a healthy lifestyle including participation in the chosen sport.
