Abstract

Thyrotoxicosis may be associated with deterioration in asthma. To determine whether bronchial reactivity to histamine is increased in hyperthyroidism 10 thyrotoxic non-asthmatic patients were assessed before and after treatment of their thyrotoxicosis. No significant change in bronchial reactivity was found after treatment.
