Therefore, this study was carried out to evaluate the serum vitamin D level among the asthmatic children (5-15 years) in Isfahan during 2012-2013. Materials and Methods: This study was conducted on children referred to the pediatric clinics in Isfahan during 2012-2013. Children with and without asthma were divided into the case and control groups, respectively. Then, the serum level of 25-hydroxy vitamin D was measured. Results: This study included 196 asthmatic and 200 non-asthmatic children. The vitamin D levels were 25.79±17.42 and 30.33±16.37 for the case and control groups, respectively this difference was statistically significant (P
