Food Allergy

Front Cover
Richard J. Trevino, Hamilton S. Dixon
Thieme, 1997 - 115 pages

Drawing on the latest food allergy research, this important book is the first to cover the diagnosis and treatment of food allergies from the perspective of the otolaryngologist. The book begins with a detailed discussion of the immunology of food allergies, and then goes on to consider the manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment of both IgE- and non- IgE-mediated food sensitivities. Throughout, the contributors provide useful guidelines, and dozens of tips, for managing food allergies and improving patient care.
