Volume 28, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1609-3607



Airborne allergens are mostly responsible for allergic conditions such as allergic rhinitis, asthma, and allergic conjunctivitis. Beyond their clinical manifestations, these conditions often have a negative effect on the patient's quality of life. The identification of the causative allergen is of utmost importance in these cases, in order for the health care provider to manage the patient appropriately, either by avoidance of the allergen, desensitisation therapy, and/or pharmacotherapy. Different test modalities are available for the testing of inhalant allergen sensitisation. Factors that should be considered when selecting a test are outlined in this article.
