[The treatment of atopic rhinitis in children with an accelerated variant of specific immunotherapy].

[Article in Russian]


An intensified course of specific immunotherapy (36 days) has been tried in 72 children with atopic vasomotor rhinitis. The age of the patients ranged from 5 to 15 years. The effectiveness of the treatment was assessed by nasal mucosa function, cellular and humoral immunity measured throughout the treatment and 6 moths after it. Good results were obtained in 71.1% of the patients, satisfactory in 24.4%, unresponsive children made up 4.2%. No complications occurred. During the treatment adverse reactions were noted in 11 children. Short-term discontinuation of the allergen administration corrected the situation. Clinical, functional and immunological findings permitted the authors to conclude on the expediency of a short-term specific immunotherapy in atopic rhinitis management in children.
