The term eosinophilic bronchitis is reserved for patients who again respond to anti-asthma medication but do not exhibit either bronchoconstriction or bronchial hyperresponsiveness. As the term implies sputum examination reveals eosinophils. Whether eosinophilic bronchitis represents a separate disease or is part of a spectrum of asthma is hotly debated and obviously depends on which definition of asthma is used. Patients with eosinophilic bronchitis may be relatively resistant to anti-asthma therapy, only responding to high doses of parenteral steroids or more severe immunosuppression. Attempting to control the disease is important since a proportion of these patients do on to develop fixed airflow obstruction or bronchiectasis.
