PMID:  2719349     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The present study describes a case of a 38-year-old nurse with asthma and probable sensitivity to sulfites. A double-blind challenge with sulfite and placebo was performed, pulmonary function tests were measured along with plasma levels of sulfites. A deficiency in sulfite-oxidase is suggested as the trigger mechanism of bronchospasm.
