oa Current Allergy & Clinical Immunology - The impact of allergy on pregnancy : guest editorial

Volume 22, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1609-3607



Readers of this journal do not need reminding that allergic conditions have a high prevalence in our population. Pregnancy is of course even more common ; therefore it is not surprising that medical practitioners are often consulted by women planning a pregnancy or already pregnant, who suffer from one of these related conditions. Once the fetus has become part of the management equation, practitioners who were confident of their management plan while the woman was not pregnant, often become uncertain and even reluctant to treat conditions that do justify medical management, for fear of harming the pregnancy. The editors are therefore to be commended for their timely request to focus an edition of this journal on the interaction of pregnancy and certain allergy-related diseases.
