We have observed in some patients that some Aspirin sensitive asthmatic present also a dyspnea after wine or foods containing sulfites ingestion. Owing to a study using ingestion test, with spirometric control, we show that sulfite sensitive asthma is more frequent in patients with Aspirin sensitive asthma than in the others. In the two cases, these molecules trigger off an asthma attack with same symptomatology, same severity, that is to say, frequently of IV type, with corticodependance. Diagnosis allow to an adapted treatment and so a better prognosis of these asthma.
