kman S, Can D Abstract Yazıcı S, Güneş S, Kurtuluş-Çokboz M, Kemer Ö, Baranlı G, Aşık-Akman S, Can D. Allergen variability and house dust mite sensitivity in pre-school children with allergic complaints. Turk J Pediatr 2018; 60: 41-49. The increase in the prevalence of allergic diseases in pre-school children who are often at home may be due to an increase in house dust mite sensitivity, which is rarely expected in this age group. In our study, it was aimed to investigate allergen sensitivities, especially house dust mite sensitivity in pre-school children with allergic disease complaints b...

AbstractAllergic rhinitis (AR) is an IgE-mediated inflammatory disease of the nasal mucosa with well described local immune responses during allergen exposure. The frequent association of AR with general extra-nasal symptoms and other allergic conditions, such as conjunctivitis and asthma, however, support a more systemic disease impact. In addition to acute elevation of soluble inflammatory mediators in periphery blood, a growing number of studies have reported changes in circulating blood cells after specific nasal allergen challenge or environmental allergen exposure. These findings imply an involvement of specific bloo...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe hyper IgE syndromes (HIES) comprise a group of rare primary immunodeficiency disorders (PIDDs), which are characterized by extremely high serum IgE levels, eczema, recurrent skin and pulmonary infections. Both autosomal dominant (AD) HIES due to STAT3 mutations and autosomal recessive (AR) HIES due to PGM3, SPINK5, DOCK8 and TKY2 mutations have been reported. Here, we aim to summarize and compare the major clinical manifestations of different subtypes of HIES. We will also discuss otitis media, which usually do not get enough attention in HIES. Update and familiarity with these clinical feature...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTelemedicine is a technology that permits patients to be seen at a distance. This review describes different types of telemedicine, why they might be useful for a practice, what equipment is needed, and how to select and schedule patients.Recent FindingsThe use of synchronous telemedicine is increasing rapidly and has surpassed 50% of ambulatory encounters in some instances. Management of patients is particularly germane for an allergy practice since it is an outpatient specialty with patients who live in widely distributed locations with limited access to allergists. With utilization of digital ex...

Prior studies have demonstrated that school-supervised use of a once-daily inhaled corticosteroid regimen can improve adherence and asthma control; however, these results were not replicated in this comparative effectiveness trial conducted primarily among Latino children.
