Abstract
The proportion of individuals with respiratory organ pathology among the teenagers is shown to be 38.9% in a large industrial town with high ambient air pollution. Among the persons with chronic pathology, the proportion of children with high inoculation is 1.4 times higher than that in healthy individuals. The frequency of hypersensitivity to domestic dust allergen was noted in more than one half of the examinees.

Abstract
To document the existence and investigate the etiology of "thunderstorm asthma," which has been reported sporadically over the past 20 years.
We assessed the relationship between thunderstorms, air pollutants, aeroallergens, and asthma admissions to a children's hospital emergency department over a 6-year period.
During thunderstorm days (n = 151 days) compared to days without thunderstorms (n = 919 days), daily asthma visits increased from 8.6 to 10 (p
