New data suggest that the use of itraconazole in combination with inhaled steroids may be useful discount fluconazole 50 mg amex. This disease is seen almost exclusively in patients with long-standing asthma 50mg fluconazole with visa; occasionally discount 150 mg fluconazole amex, ABPA is diag- nosed in patients with cystic fibrosis order fluconazole 150mg. A 45-year-old man comes to your office to establish primary care fluconazole 150mg. He has had asthma since childhood, and he has been experiencing occasional wheezing, shortness of breath, and cough productive of yellow sputum. He cannot identify specific irritants that trigger his asthma. He lives with his wife and their two children in an apartment building and works in an auto-body shop. He has no nasal polyps, and his physical examination is unremarkable. Because he has no specific allergic precipitants (i. His occasional cough associated with yellow sputum is likely to be infectious in origin 4 BOARD REVIEW C. The fact that his physical examination is normal should raise suspi- cion that his symptoms are caused by something other than asthma alone D. You should caution him against starting a regular exercise program, because this may worsen his asthma symptoms Key Concept/Objective: To understand that occupational asthma is common and that patients with long-standing asthma may not be aware that an occupational irritant is contributing to their asthma Occupational exposure plays a role in 10% of patients with asthma. Patients with asth- ma often experience delayed hypersensitivity reactions more than 12 hours after expo- sure; because of this, a patient who had asthma before starting a job may not be aware of a noxious irritant in the workplace. Workers in auto-body shops are at risk for occu- pational asthma caused by paint spray. The distinction between intrinsic and extrinsic asthma has no bearing on asthma management. Eosinophils and their debris often cause yellow discoloration of sputum even in the absence of infection. Patients often have a normal physical examination between exacerbations. Although exercise can trigger asthma, with appropriate therapy almost all patients with asthma can perform regular exercise without difficulty. At your urging, the patient in Question 5 attempts to start exercising, but he finds that he develops short- ness of breath soon after he finishes jogging. Which of the following statements about this patient is most correct? His shortness of breath may very well result from being out of shape B. He would benefit from use of ipratropium bromide before exercise C. He would benefit from use of a beta agonist before exercise D. He would benefit from use of theophylline before exercise E. He would benefit from use of an inhaled steroid before exercise Key Concept/Objective: To understand the appropriate therapy for exercise-induced asthma The most effective therapy for exercise-induced asthma is an inhaled beta agonist. Cromolyn is also effective, and newer leukotriene modifiers may also have a role. Theophylline, corticosteroids, and anticholinergics have no role in the treatment of exercise-induced asthma. The patient in Question 5 returns to clinic for follow-up 12 weeks later. He mentions that 7 days ago he had a headache, for which he took two aspirin. Later, as the headache began to subside, he also devel- oped itchy eyes and an itchy throat. Which of the following statements about this patient is most correct? Because he does not have nasal polyps, it is unlikely that he has aspirin hypersensitivity B. He is likely to have similar reactions to all NSAIDs C. This reaction was the result of salicylate sensitivity, so ibuprofen should be safe for him to use D.
