Abstract
The population of the United States includes many groups with diverse racial and ethnic heritages. The people in these groups have patterns of health, disease, and illnesses that differ from those of the white majority of the United States. Conditions of the respiratory tract are no exception: even mortality data, a crude measure of disease impact, show some striking effects of race and ethnicity on the major diseases of the respiratory tract. The purpose of this review is to provide clinicians and researchers with a comprehensive overview of respiratory diseases among the minority populations of the United States, including blacks, Hispanics, Asians-Pacific Islanders, and American Indians-Alaskan Natives. The review addresses risk factors for the major respiratory diseases, the occurrence of these respiratory diseases in children and adults, and related clinical issues.
