Childhood bronchial asthma

A 53-year-old female was admitted with infected traumatic cutaneous ulcers. The infectious organism was Staphylococcus aureus, and levofloxacin was administered. She had been diagnosed with bronchial asthma during childhood and had been treated by her family doctor. For several years, her bronchial asthma worsened and she was treated with fluticasone/salmeterol (500 mcg/100 mcg per day), prednisolone (10 mg per day), theophylline (400 mg per day), and pranlukast (leukotriene receptor antagonist, 450 mg per day). She had suffered from dyspnea upon exertion and wheezing continuously for the prior two months. Pulmonary function tests, which had been conducted three months before admission, showed a pattern of obstruction
