Abstract

Asthma exacerbations are among the most frequent reasons for paediatric primary care and emergency care visits. Asthma is a disease with a well-established management and treatment algorithm based on severity, and drugs with a good safety profile for the paediatric population are available for its treatment. We present a case with a poor inital response illustrating a paradoxical reaction to salbutamol.
