Abstract

The term bronchiolitis refers to the presence of an inflammatory response in the respiratory bronchioles. This article summarizes the current general agreement that the inflammatory process present in bronchiolitis is responsible for the changes seen in the airways in both asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
