Case history features and description of objective changes in children with bronchopulmonary diseases were the subject of the research. Case history features in children with chronic and recurrent bronchitis were studied in detail. It was shown that ineffectiveness of outpatient treatment with the need for hospitalization occurred in 60-80% of cases, antibiotic therapy inefficiency with the need for anti-infective drugs change was in one third of patients at previous stages of the disease. Extragenital pathologies in mothers (ARVI during pregnancy, anemia of pregnancy, TORCH infections, smoking and taking medication, amniotic fluid contamination), complicated perinatal period (asphyxia during delivery, chronic intrauterine hypoxia, pneumonia of newborn), delivery pathologies (Cesarean section, poor uterine contraction strength, premature rupture of membrane and CNS perinatal affection) were indicated to be the risk factors for the development of bronchopulmonary diseases in children. The main characteristics of anthropometric measurements, objective changes in children with bronchopulmonary disease were identified with defining of basic diagnostic criteria for each nosology.
