  • Asthma (ASTHMA) [MIM:600807]: The most common chronic disease affecting children and young adults. It is a complex genetic disorder with a heterogeneous phenotype, largely attributed to the interactions among many genes and between these genes and the environment. It is characterized by recurrent attacks of paroxysmal dyspnea, with wheezing due to spasmodic contraction of the bronchi. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18395550, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18760456, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19133921}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
