Dear Editor, The relationship between intestinal helminthiasis and asthma remains controversial. Intestinal helminthiasis is sometimes described as a protective factor against the development qsma asthma and allergic diseases, sometimes as an aggravating factor 1.
The recently published study by Silva et al, to a certain extent contradicts the findings of other authors 2.
