Whole lung lavage in small children at the same session is not always safe due to factors such as the occurrence of hypoxic episodes (1, 2).

Hypothesizing that a neurochemical alteration related to sensory hyperreactivity (SHR) of the airway mucosa occurs, we measured levels of nerve growth factor (NGF) in nasal lavage
