A cross-sectional study showed that 130 out of 1758 (8%) primary school children without a previous asthma diagnosis had undiagnosed asthma.
Of the parents, 38% refused to visit a general practitioner for this disorder.
Factors associated with refusal were highly maternal education, mild symptoms and absence of airway reversibility.
