Abstract

Background: Characteristics of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)-hypersensitivity (NH) associated with underlying/accompanying diseases has not been studied in Turkey. In addition, the factors associated with asthma in NH patients are not well known. The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between NH and chronic urticaria, rhinitis/rhinosinusitis, and asthma in an effort to identify NH phenotypes. The study's secondary aim was to identify the factors associated with asthma in NH patients and the NSAID reaction pattern in asthmatics.
