Abstract

An increased basal cholinergic tone, induced by psychological health impairment, could be a likely link between psychological/psychiatric disorders and severe bronchial asthma in children, as well as in adolescents and adults. This link can explain the high rate of anxiety in asthmatics in comparison to non-asthmatics of all ages.
