Making a diagnosis of asthma in children can be difficult. As a result, significant over and under-diagnosis of asthma occurs in children.

Conversely, under-diagnosis results in poor asthma control and reduced quality of life. A European Respiratory Society (ERS) task force developed evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for the diagnosis of asthma in children aged 5 to 16 years.
