A 42-year-old lady was referred for respiratory review with a history of asthma, which had become difficult to control over the last 3 years, with increased nocturnal cough and peak flow variability. She had received multiple courses of oral antibiotics and steroids to which she would briefly respond, and was on a long-term combined inhaled steroid and long-acting beta agonist. She used a nasal steroid for nasal polyps. She had not moved house or changed jobs, she worked as a gardener and had no pets.
