Backgrounds and immunological characteristics were studied in patients with chronic respiratory diseases admitted at Misasa Branch Hospital in 1989. At the same time, clinical effects of spa therapy were evaluated for these patients. 1. Eighty five patients with chronic respratory diseases comprised 65 patients with bronchial asthma, 4 with pulmonary emphysema, 4 with lung tuberculosis, 3 with allergic granulomatous angitis, 3 with obstructive bronchiolitis, 2 with bronchiectasia, 2 with chronic bronchitis and 2 with hypersensitivity pneumonitis. 2. Sixty three patients (74.1%) out of the 85 cases had spa therapy. 3. Out of 51 patients coming from Tottoriprefecture, 32 cases (62.7%) received spa therapy. On the other hand, spa therapy was carried out for 19 cases (95.0%) out of the 20 cases from Okayama prefecture, and for 12 cases (85.7%) out of the 14 cases from the other prefectures (long distant areas). 4. Many cases with bronchial asthma showed low serum levels of IgE (lower than 200 IU/ml), and frequency of positive skin reactions to various allergens was low in the patients with bronchial asthma. Serum cortisol levels were very low in patients with steroid-dependent asthma. 5. Spa therapy was effective in 41 cases (80.3%) out of the 51 patients with bronchial asthma. Spa therapy also effective for patients with obstructive bronchiolitis, and allergic granulomatous angitis.
