Does anyone consider bacteria chlamydia pneumoniae and mycoplasma when treating asthma patients? Do you know of a doc in the nyc area? Thanks
Most pulmonologists. Should think of atypical infections when treating asthma - although the notion that these are causes of asthma is out of fashion except in elderly women or asians. Using macrolide antibiotics for patients with bronchiectasis or airway inflammation that is not responsive to inhaled corticosteroids is (but likely for the anti-inflammatory properties of these drugs). Don't have a ny area reference.
