We report a 4 yr follow up study of seven asthmatic children with chronic persistent asthma, high-residual volume and low-density areas at high-resolution computerized tomography after treatment with salmeterol and fluticasone. Improvement of lung function with disappearance of low-density areas in six patients after treatment with fluticasone and montelukast was obtained.
