Abstract

A series of complicated cases is presented in which the aspect of allergy and its careful management influenced the resolution and control of the disease.

Examples consist of patients with severe headache, nasal obstruction, pharyngitis, Ménière's disease, gastrointestinal trouble — especially vomiting and diarrhea, anorexia nervosa, bronchiectasis, and severe chronic otitis externa with generalized eczema.

The methods used to detect the allergic factors are mentioned, and the treatment necessary to bring about resolution of the diseases is discussed.

Pertinent knowledge obtained from each case is elucidated.
