AIMS: To evaluate the risk of disruption of distal airways in children exposed to pollutants automobiles. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Study included 156 children selected assigned in groups "Most Exposed" and "Less Exposed" separated respectively 15 meters and 150 meters of road traffic. Children in both groups were subjected to lung function tests before and after an exercise test that was to perform a series of flexion / extension of the knees to the fatigue. FEV and MEF25 were parameters selected. RESULTS: Change in FEV post exercise of each group is below 5%. The group "Less Exposed" presented a mean value of MEF25 before exercise similar to that recorded after exercise. Within the group "Most Exposed", the mean value of MEF25 post exercise is significantly lower than that observed at rest of 8.65%. CONCLUSION: The fact of living permanently near the traffic, poses serious risks of disruption of the distal airways.
