Program Summary: Obstruction of the central airways is an important cause of exercise-induced inspiratory symptoms our Vocal cord dysfunction in young and otherwise healthy individuals. This is a large, heterogeneous group of patients. The symptoms are too often confused with those of asthma. Laryngoscopy performed as symptoms evolve during increasing exercise is sometimes needed to confirm the diagnosis. Causal mechanisms are poorly understood. Most treatment options are based on weak evidence, but most patients seem to benefit from individualised information and guidance. A systematic clinical approach to diagnosis and treatment is discussed using problem based case discussion.
