Childhood asthma is a common chronic respiratory disease; it may be associated with other co-morbidities which may influence its severity. Among these is chronic rhino sinusitis, conjunctivitis, or gastroesophageal reflux disease. However, nasal polyps are rare in asthmatic children, being more common in those more than 20 years. Its exact cause is not completely understood and it has been associated with sensitivity to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. In this communication we report a case of a 11-year-old boy with multiple nasal polyps and difficult to manage asthma.
