The survey of 316 children with asthma, inhabitants of Podillya region was conducted. It has been established that the highest number of them occurs in the age group of 8 to 12 years (n=158 – 50,01%: 113 boys – 35,76% and 45 girls – 14,25%) and 13 to 16 years (n=96 – 30,36%: 77 boys -24,36% and 19 girls – 6,0%). Among the patients requiring inpatient treatment, patients with persistent asthma (253 children, 80.06%), with intermittent one – 19,94% (63 patients, RR=16) predominated. Allergic rhinitis and allergy are common in boys both in persistent asthma (allergic rhinitis: 113 – 24,62% and 76 – 16,55%, respectively, allergies) and in intermittent asthma (allergic rhinitis: 31 – 6,75% and 19 – 4,14%, respectively, allergy). The prevalence of allergens dominated among other non-infectious factors and were 40,93% (149 cases, RR>2.0) and prevailed in boys (94-28,82%; RR> 2.0) only in the group of 5-7 years old.
