Wheezing in infants and under-five children may present a diagnostic problem as there are various aetiologies for this symptom. Diagnosis of asthma is often made as it is one of the causes of wheezing in children. It is however important to have taken a complete history, including allergy and appropriate diagnostic investigations. If the child’s symptoms do not improve despite appropriate therapy, a different diagnosis must be pursued. We report the case of a child who presented to us with wheezing and who did not respond to therapy.
