We evaluated the occurrence of asthma attacks at school in a sample of 13,266 adolescents (13-14 year old) from 12 centers across Italy (SIDRIA-2 study). 23.8% of asthmatic subjects reported at least one wheezing attack at school in the previous 12 months. The attacks occurred in the gymnasium (55.4%), in the classroom (42.6%), outside (28.7%), in the bathroom (4.5%) and in other school environments (4%). During the attacks, self-administration of a bronchodilator was reported by 66% of the subjects. Educational programs and specific guidelines to deal with asthmatic schoolchildren are warranted.
