Category: Drug Allergy Topics for Medical Professionals, what is Aspirin Triad Asthma (also known as AIA-Aspirin intolerant Asthma)? Aspirin-intolerant asthma (AIA) is a specific toddler subtype of asthma. It is characterized by asthmatic episodes triggered within 1-3 hours of taking an aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids).
There also often rhinitis symptoms (nasal congestion, runny nose and sneezing) and facial flushing.
The asthma attack triggered by aspirin may be very severe and life threatening. The syndrome of Aspirin Triad Asthma is different from other forms of asthma.
The syndrome starts with nasal symptoms including congestion, and sneezing, runny nose and diminished or loss of a sense of smell.
The lining of the nose swells and nasal polyps develop.
On average, asthma develops two years after the onset of nasal symptoms, with intolerance to aspirin and other nsaids occurring about four years later. Sinus infections are very common in those with significant nasal obstruction.
Patients with Aspirin Intolerant Asthma may be unaware of their intolerance to aspirin. They may have taken aspirin or nsaids in the past, before onset of this syndrome, without any problem.
