### Asthma and COPD represent the tip of the iceberg for the non pulmonologists !!! Case 1 : Sliding hiatus hernia (misdiagnosed as asthma) Case 2 : Cryptogenic organizing pneumonia (COP)(misdiagnosed as chest infection) Case 3: Simple pulmonary eosinophilia (misdiagnosed as lung adenocarcinoma) Case 4: Kartagners syndrome (misdiagnosed as chest infection) Case 5: Round pneumonia (misdiagnosed as tumor) Case 6: Tracheal tumor (misdiagnosed as asthma) Case 7: Hiatus hernia (misdiagnosed as asthma) Case 8: Osteoblastic metastasis from prostate cancer (misdiagnosed as chest infection) Here comes the importance of specialist referral when in doubt. Not all wheezes is asthma !!! Not all glitters is gold !!!
