Asthma is a major cause of chronic morbidity and mortality throughout the world, affecting people of all ages. There is evidence that its prevalence is increasing, especially among children. When uncontrolled, asthma can place severe limits on daily life. By diagnosing asthma early and implementing appropriate therapy, the condition can be treated effectively, and most patients will be able to achieve good control of the disease. Inhaled corticosteroids help to reduce airway inflammation and are effective in the prophylactic management of chronic persistent asthma. The role of ciclesonide, an inhaled corticosteroid for the management of asthma, will be discussed in this short review article.
