AB  - OBJECTIVES: Allergic rhinitis (AR) and asthma often occur concomitantly and are
      the two most common inflammatory conditions of the airways in children.
      Large-scale studies investigating the comorbidity of asthma and AR in children
      are rare. So, we performed a meta-analysis to describe the comorbidity rate of
      asthma and AR in Chinese children. METHODS: We retrieved related studies from
      Pubmed, Science, Springer, Elsevier, Embase, BMJ, and four Chinese biomedical
      databases, including Wanfang Data, VIP, CBM, and CNKI. From these individual
      studies, the comorbidity rate of asthma and AR in Chinese children was extracted 
      and pooled to generate summary effect estimates in R version 3.2.3. RESULTS: The 
      meta-analysis included 25 cross-sectional studies. The results indicated that in 
      China, the incidence of asthma in children with AR is 35.01% (95% CI:
      32.32%-37.70%) and the incidence of AR in children with asthma is 54.93% (95% CI:
      53.05%-56.80%). CONCLUSIONS: The comorbidity of AR and asthma is high in Chinese 
      children. Statistically, the prevalence of AR was higher in children with asthma,
      as opposed to the prevalence of asthma in children with AR. The comorbidity rate 
      of AR and asthma signifies the importance of improving the recognition and
      treatment under both conditions by respiratory physicians and otolaryngologists.
