This study was undertaken to determine the concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in theindoor air between houses of atopy, asthma patients and new houses.Total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) in the indoor and outdoor air of normal houses were measuredas 92.6 and 72.5 ㎍/㎥, respectively. TVOCs in the indoor and outdoor air of atopy patient's houses were152 and 42.1 ㎍/㎥. TVOCs in the indoor and outdoor air of asthma patient's houses was 165 and 50.1 ㎍/㎥.TVOCs in the indoor and outdoor air of new houses was 158 and 78.3 ㎍/㎥.It was found that the concentrations of VOCs were higher in the indoor air of atopy, asthma patient's andnew houses than the normal houses. This suggests that the concentration of VOCs can influence atopy andasthma.
