Zafer Kartalošlu.

It has been reported that psychopathologies are more common in patients
with asthma than in the general population. It has been suggested that
the relationship between asthma and psychological factors may be
complex. It has been determined that brain has a role of in modulating
various components of asthmatic response. Pharmachological treatment
of psychiatric diseases in asthmatics may improve the quality of life in
these patients. There has not yet been adequate evidence about the role of
psychological therapeutic interventions in asthma. Larger, well-conducted
and randomized trials are required in this area.

Key words: Anxiety, asthma, depression, psychology, stress
