Abstract

The respiratory tract and gastrointestinal tract (GIT) share common embryologic origins, and an intriguing and commonly revisited question is the following: “Do processes occurring somewhere along the length of the GIT cause asthma symptoms?” Gastroenterologists have been known to remind their pulmonology colleagues that the lungs are actually the larger of 2 appendices of the GIT. Might it be feasible that processes taking place in the GIT can cause respiratory symptoms?
