Chronic asthmatic bronchitis is the condition in which the
airways in the lungs are obstructed due to both persistent
asthma and chronic bronchitis (see sections 1.0 and 1.0.6).
People with this disease generally also have a persistent
cough which brings up mucus. Chronic asthmatic bronchitis
which also involves emphysema is usually classified under
the more general category of COPD.
