The aim of the paper is to give an overview of the history of knowledge on asthma from the Renaissance till the beginning of the 20 th century. During this period the clinical picture of bronchial asthma and some etiological factors - like familiarity of the disease, the role of the pollen, psychological factors - were cleared. The disease was relatively rare in these periods - the epidemiological explosion came only in the second half of the 20 th century. Data on pediatric asthma, before all in Hungary are demonstrated mostly based on the works of Schoepf and Bókai senior in the first half of the 19 th century.
