    Can montelukast exacerbate allready present mild CSS.

    Dear Editor

    In the case report presented, a 12-month follow up (after montelukast was discontinued) has not shown any exacerbations of CSS simillar to that occured after initiation of montelukast. However,the patient was mantained on 10 mg prednisolone (low-dose) to prevent couph, fever and peripheral blood oesinophilia,suggesting underlying but mild CSS that has been exacerbated by montelukast.
