Abstract
Asthma is a common chronic respiratory disease in children. The diagnosis of asthma in children may be associated with other comorbidities, which may influence the disease in several ways, including optimal asthma control. The main objective of this study was to determine the association of common comorbidities with asthma in children between 5 and 15 years. A cross-sectional study was carried out in a tertiary care hospital of western Rajasthan. A set of 23 questions were offered to the children with asthma and/or their parents and their responses were noted manually. A total of 95 children (74 male) were enrolled, allergic rhinitis (AR) was documented in 72 (75%) followed by psychological disturbance in 68 (71%), snoring in 47 (49.5%), gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) in 44 (46.3%), atopic dermatitis in 26 (27.3%), and sinusitis in 19 (20%) children. There was no statistical significant association observed between asthma comorbidities and gender. Allergic rhinitis was the most common comorbidity in children with asthma followed by psychological disturbance, GER, and snoring. Both boys and girls had similar prevalence of asthma comorbidities.

Key words: Asthma; Comorbidity; Peak expiratory flow rate.
