[Bronchial asthma in children with sensitization to mites].

[Article in Russian]


Overall 180 children with bronchial asthma induced by sensitization to Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus and Dermatophagoides farinae were examined clinically and immunologically. The patients' age ranged from 1 to 14 years. A relationship was established between bronchial asthma exacerbation and the stay at home. In that disease pattern, asphyxia attacks were noted to occur more frequently in the evening and night hours. Emphasis is laid on the leading part played by the IgE-mediated mechanism in bronchial asthma induced by tick-borne sensitization. In children suffering from that pattern of bronchial asthma, specific hyposensitization with Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus allergens and antiallergic immunoglobulin were found to be highly effective.
