Allergy and immunology involves the management of disorders related to the immune system. These conditions range from the very common to the very rare, spanning all ages and encompassing various organ systems. Diseases typically seen by an allergist/immunologist (often referred to simply as an “allergist”) include:

  • Allergic diseases of the eye, such as allergic conjunctivitis
  • Respiratory tract-related conditions such as allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis and occupational lung diseases
  • Gastrointestinal disorders caused by immune responses to foods, including eosinophilic esophagitis or gastroenteritis, and food protein-induced enteropathies
  • Skin-related allergic conditions such as atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, acute and chronic urticaria, or angioedema
  • Adverse reactions to foods, drugs, vaccines, stinging insects and other agents
    Diseases primarily affecting the immune system, including primary immune deficiencies such as severe combined immune deficiency syndromes, antibody deficiencies, complement deficiency, phagocytic cell abnormalities, or other impairments in innate immunity and acquired immune deficiency
  • Systemic diseases including anaphylaxis and systemic diseases involving mast cells or eosinophils
    Diseases associated with autoimmune responses to self-antigens, such as auto-inflammatory syndromes
    Stem cell, bone marrow and/or organ transplantation
