The paper deals with the comparative analysis of composition of colonizing microflora in children with bronchial asthma (BA) and acute respiratory infection (ARI). The constant oropharyngeal biotopes in children with ARI and BA were Staphylococci and α-hemolytic Staphylococci. The arm groups differed by the content of secondary microorganisms: ARI were associated with Streptococcus spp. with β-hemolysis, E.coli and Candida spp., BA was associated with autochtonous microorganisms (Streptococcus spp. with β-hemolysis, Moraxella spp., Corynebacterium spp.). The variety of species composition of oropharyngeal biota was doubled in patients with ARI compared with the children with BA. Staphylococci and Streptococci prevailed at both ARI and BA.
