Methods: This prospective cohort study was conducted in the Children’s Hospital of Soochow University from January 2012 to December 2014. Children aged 6–14 years with a cough of duration >4 weeks were enrolled. They underwent FeNO measurement, sputum cytology and pulmonary function tests.
Results: A total of 115 patients and 25 healthy controls were evaluated. For the diagnosis of CVA, the optimal FeNO cutoff value was 25 ppb with a sensitivity of 84.0%, specificity of 97.1%, positive predictive value of 97.5%, and negative predictive of being 81.4%. The FeNO level had a significant correlation with eosinophil count in sputum (P},
