Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways which is characterized by recurrent episodes of airway
obstruction, associated with airway hyper responsiveness that leads to symptoms of dyspnea, wheezing, chest
tightness, and/or coughing. Omega shaped epiglottis is a type of laryngomalacia which is a result of curling on itself
of the epiglottis because of shortened aryepiglottic folds.
