Welcome to the summer edition of the European Respiratory & Pulmonary Diseases, expertly introduced by our Editorial Board member Mário Morais-Almeida. This edition includes a range of editorials, reviews and case reports for you to read and enjoy. Marie-Pia d’Ortho and colleagues discuss adaptive servo-ventilation, a non-invasive ventilatory positive airway pressure therapy for the treatment of adults with both obstructive and central sleep-disordered breathing. This edition also features an interesting case report of pleuropulmonary blastoma originating from an extralobar sequestration in an infant, as well as a number of topical editorials, succinctly examining a range of important topics including respiratory tract disorders and the future of asthma research. We hope you enjoy this edition of the European Respiratory & Pulmonary Diseases and that it provides a useful information relevant to your practice and interests.
