Allergy Asthma Proc 2020 03;41(2):e37-e44

Division of Allergy and Immunology, Department of Chest Diseases, Ankara University School of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.

Proton-pump inhibitors (PPI) are one of the most commonly prescribed drugs, and they are generally well tolerated. However, several immediate and delayed hypersensitivity reactions due to PPIs have been reported. To review the clinical characteristics and management of immune-mediated immediate and delayed hypersensitivity reactions to PPIs. Read More

Eosinophilic dermatoses.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2019 10 27;17(10):1039-1051. Epub 2019 Sep 27.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital, Jena, Germany.

Eosinophilic dermatoses are a heterogeneous group of diseases, characterized by an eosinophil-rich infiltrate and/or degranulation of eosinophils. Blood eosinophilia may be an associated feature. Typical, albeit not specific histological findings include 'flame figures', which are caused by the accumulation of cationic proteins released by eosinophils and subsequent collagen denaturation.

Eosinophilic oesophagitis (in nickel-allergic patient) regressed after nickel oral desensitization: A case report.

Int J Immunopathol Pharmacol 2019 Jan-Dec;33:2058738419827771

3 Endoscopic Digestive Surgery, IRCCS Fondazione Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Rome, Italy.

The eosinophilic oesophagitis (EoE) is a chronic immune/antigen disorder of the oesophagus clinically characterized by dysphagia and pathologically by mucosa eosinophilic infiltration. Th2-type allergic reactions are considered having important roles in the aetiopathogenesis of EoE. Avoidance of food allergens, administration of steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and dilation of the oesophagus are the most important treatments. Read More

Allergy and Asthma: Food Allergies.

Authors:
Raj Mehta

FP Essent 2018 Sep;472:16-19

Florida Hospital Family Medicine Residency, 133 Benmore Drive, Winter Park, FL 32792.

Food allergies are immune-mediated allergic adverse reactions that occur after exposure to specific foods. The most commonly recognized food allergies are immunoglobulin E (IgE)-mediated reactions (eg, urticaria, angioedema, anaphylaxis) that result from exposure to milk, egg, peanut, tree nuts, shellfish, fish, wheat, or soy. However, other foods can cause food allergies. Read More

When should the diagnosis 'contact urticaria' be used?

Contact Dermatitis 2017 Nov 21;77(5):323-324. Epub 2017 Sep 21.

Occupational Medicine, Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, PO Box 40, 00251 Helsinki, Finland.

In the dermatological literature, the term 'contact urticaria syndrome' is often used with patients presenting no symptoms of contact urticaria, but symptoms of adjacent mucous membranes evolving to a systemic allergic reaction. Contact urticaria refers to a wheal and flare reaction following external contact with a causative substance. Its use should be restricted to skin: a skin reaction after direct skin contact.

The 'Tattoo Clinic', Department of Dermatology, Bispebjerg University Hospital, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Tattoo complications represent a broad spectrum of clinical entities and disease mechanisms. Infections are known, but chronic inflammatory reactions have hitherto been inconsistently reported and given many interpretations and terms. A clinical classification system of distinct patterns with emphasis on inflammatory tattoo reactions is introduced. Read More

Cosmetic components causing contact urticaria: a review and update.

Contact Dermatitis 2016 Dec 4;75(6):333-344. Epub 2016 Sep 4.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospitals KU Leuven, Leuven, 3000, Belgium.

Immediate skin reactions are common in dermatological practice, but may often be overlooked. The main objective of this article is to provide an update of the literature concerning immediate-type reactions or contact urticaria/contact urticaria syndrome caused by cosmetic ingredients in terms of immediate clinical symptoms, positive reactions following open, scratch or, most often, prick testing, and sometimes the detection of specific IgE antibodies. To this end, a selective search in different medical literature databases was performed. Read More

[Mucosal diseases from an allergological perspective].

Hautarzt 2016 Oct;67(10):780-785

Univ. Klinik für Dermatologie, LKH Graz, Auenbruggerplatz 8, 8036, Graz, Österreich.

The oral allergy syndrome is one of the most common form of food allergy and manifests as contact urticaria of the oral mucosa after consumption of cross reacting foods. Whereas allergic contact stomatitis often occurs due to dental materials, allergic contact cheilitis is usually a reaction due to topical therapeutics like herpes ointments or lip care products. As late type reactions are more frequent than immediate type reactions in the anogenital mucosa, contact dermatitis in this area should be identified via epicutaneous testing. Read More

Cutaneous reactions to vaccinations.

Clin Dermatol 2015 May-Jun;33(3):327-32. Epub 2014 Dec 8.

Department of Medicine, Section of Dermatology, University of Chicago, Pritzker School of Medicine, 5841 S. Maryland Ave MC 5067, Chicago, IL 60637; Department of Pediatrics, University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, 5841 S. Maryland Ave MC, 5067 Chicago, IL 60637.

Vaccinations are important for infectious disease prevention; however, there are adverse effects of vaccines, many of which are cutaneous. Some of these reactions are due to nonspecific inflammation and irritation at the injection site, whereas other reactions are directly related to the live attenuated virus. Rarely, vaccinations have been associated with generalized hypersensitivity reactions, such as erythema multiforme, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, urticaria, acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis, and drug hypersensitivity syndrome.

Eosinophilic Skin Diseases: A Comprehensive Review.

Clin Rev Allergy Immunol 2016 Apr;50(2):189-213

Department of Dermatology, The Second Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, 139 Middle Renmin Road, Changsha, Hunan, 410011, China.

Eosinophilic skin diseases, commonly termed as eosinophilic dermatoses, refer to a broad spectrum of skin diseases characterized by eosinophil infiltration and/or degranulation in skin lesions, with or without blood eosinophilia. The majority of eosinophilic dermatoses lie in the allergy-related group, including allergic drug eruption, urticaria, allergic contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, and eczema. Parasitic infestations, arthropod bites, and autoimmune blistering skin diseases such as bullous pemphigoid, are also common. Read More

Department of Internal Medicine, Geriatrics and Allergology, Medical University, Wroclaw, Poland. Head of Department: Prof. Bernard Panaszek MD, PhD.

In the group of urticaria, contact urticaria syndrome is a particular variety. In these patients, appearance of typical skin lesions is preceded by contact of the skin and mucous membranes with various inhaled allergens, nutrients or contact details. Furthermore, symptoms connected with contact urticaria syndrome are characterized by gradual, stepwise waveform, which can be easily generalized - patients may develop systemic symptoms similar to those found in the angioedema, asthma or anaphylactic shock.

Przegl Lek 2013 ;70(12):1051-5

In spite of popular beliefs, the relationship between eczema and food allergy still puzzles researchers and clinicians, which in part is due to the variety of mechanisms involved in various types of allergy. One has to realize the differences between hypersensitivity reactions to food proteins (allergens capable of initiating immediate hypersensitivity or immune complex reactions) and low-molecular weight compounds (haptens that may initiate cytotoxic reactions or delayed-type allergy). Hardly doubted is the role of IgE specific to food proteins in anaphylactic reactions and allergic urticaria. Read More

The symptoms of pollen allergy in the European population occur in a period of increased pollen precipitation, and take the form of allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis, bronchial asthma, contact urticaria, and food allergy. Diagnosis in addition to medical history, takes into account the positive results of skin tests and elevated allergen-specific IgE antibodies (specific IgE) in serum. These studies are considered to be objective diagnostic tests confirming the diagnosis of pollen allergy. Read More
