Abstract

Through a review of all cases seen during the last 5 years, 20 practicing paediatricians were able to identify 40 cases who satisfy the diagnostic criteria for FPAPA. Recurrence range was between 3 and 6 weeks and overall duration from 1 to 6 years. 12 cases were successfully treated with a single dose of steroids, 12 underwent surgery and were all cured, 1 was treated with inhalatory steroids and recovered. The remaining 12 recovered spontaneously.
