Introduction: Asthma is a common reversible chronic respiratory disease that occurs in children and adults with several manifestations. Examining and recognizing the findings of simple chest X-rays in patients with asthma enables preventing complications and progression of the disease by diagnosing asthma or other possible disorders.

Materials and methods: This cross-sectional study was performed in 2018 on patients with asthma admitted to Taleghani Hospital in Gorgan, Iran. The data were collected from hospital records and chest X-ray reports of the patients.

Findings: Overall, 269 patients were recruited. The gender distribution of the participants was as follows: 110 (40.9%) female and 159 (59.1%) male. In this study, the mean age of patients was 4.85 years. We found a significant relationship between chest pain and the presence of pneumothorax in the patients’ graph (P=0.001).

Conclusion: The research findings indicated that the sex and age of the patient were not related to the graphic findings of patients. Most of the patients’ complaints were coughs and shortness of breath, which were not related to the graphic findings of the patients. A significant relationship was found between patients reporting chest pain and pneumothorax in their chest X-rays. By studying and recognizing chest radiographic findings in patients with asthma, the complications and progression of the disease can be prevented.
