Asthma has become the most common chronic disease among children and is one of the major causes of hospitalization to the fifteenth year of age. In 1999-2004, asthma prevalence in children in EU varied from less than 5% to over 20%. Most hospital admissions of children with asthma are in Ljubljana and Maribor. As more and more people are sensitive to allergens, allergic diseases may increase in the Europe in the coming years. Recent evidences support relationship between exposure to air pollution and exacerbation of asthma, mainly due to exposure to particulate matter(PM10).
