Aspirin associated Asthma:
Primarily affects adults, although the condition may occur in
childhood.
Usually begins with perennial vasomotor rhinitis that is followed by
hyperplastic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps.
Progressive asthma then appears.
On exposure to even very small quantities of aspirin, affected
individuals typically develop ocular and nasal congestion and acute,
often severe episodes of airways obstruction.
Death may follow ingestion of aspirin.
