Search this article


We present a case of a patient with asthma who developed yawning associated with anterior chest pain. She was admitted due to severe anterior chest pain, wheezing and dyspnea. Although the frequency of the symptoms decreased, she began to experience frequent episodes of yawning at night accompanied by tears. While she experienced yawning, although PEF (peak expiratory flow) decreased, no asthmatic symptoms, such as wheezing or dyspnea were observed. The yawning was improved markedly by bronchodilators and a leukotriene receptor antagonist, and moderately improved by corticosteroids. We speculated that yawning is a clinical manifestation of asthma that responds to treatment.
