Abstract

Chronic cough has been reported to be the fifth most com- mon complaint seen by primary care physicians in the world, the third in Italy. Chronic cough in non-smoking, non-treated with ACE-inhibitor adults with normal chest radiogram could be a symptom of asthma and can be sub-classified into: cough-variant asthma, atopic cough, and eosinophilic bron- chitis. This review discusses the differential diagnosis of these three disorders.
