Asthma is a common disease encountered in internal medicine practice. In most cases, the diagnosis and management of asthma is straightforward; however, the management of severe asthma may require subspecialty consultation. Abnormal responses of resident cells to infections and antigens may cause asthma in early life and may chronically perpetuate asthma. The natural history of asthma remains poorly understood. In this article, the authors focus on the diagnosis and management of asthma in adults.
