The origins of the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease have recently piqued the curiosity of researchers. Epidemiological studies indicate that chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is caused by factors other than tobacco smoking. Childhood asthma has been identified as a risk factor in cross-sectional investigations of adult cohorts with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. According to a new longitudinal childhood cohort study of children from infancy to the age of 50, children with severe asthma are at a higher risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and the impairment in lung function may be traced back to childhood.

Children who have severe asthma are more likely to develop the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
