Aim. - Chronically ill patients may be preoccupied with health issues such as anxiety and depression that can heighten emotional difficulties, and previous studies have reported an association between asthma and depression and anxiety. The literature contains limited data about the relationship between negative psychological state and control in asthma patients. We aimed to evaluate psychiatric comorbidities such as anxiety and depression in addition to coping strategies in terms of stress management and social desirability in asthma patients, and sought to investigate their impact on asthma control.
