Abstract: Purpose Case series on respiratory features of Aerotoxic Syndrome (AS). The term AS has been coined to describe the spectrum of clinical manifestations after aircraft fume events. Among these manifestations, neurological and respiratory symptoms are the most frequently reported complaints. Methods Three cases of AS with relevant respiratory features are presented. Results Cough and shortness of breath for 6 to12 months were the predominant symptoms in the first two cases. The first case also developed neurological symptoms affecting his central nervous system. In the third case, the patient complained for nine years about an unbearable cough triggered by odors, smells, and a variety of indoor and outdoor irritants, among other symptoms of multiple chemical sensitivity. In all three cases, the respiratory symptoms resolved after appropriate treatment. Conclusion Our report aims at raising awareness on AS and calls for actions to improve the management of patients suffering from this syndrome.
