Abstract:
A chronic cough is defined as a cough lasting longer than 8 weeks. Around 10% of referrals to respiratory outpatient have a chronic cough as the presenting complaint. Coughing is classically described as a protective reflex response to mechanical and chemical airway stimulation and therefore a chronic cough must be adequately investigated. The following case illustrates this.
