Allergies affect 15%–20% of the pediatric population. The main allergens are inhaled, ingested, or injected (i.e., insect stings), leading to reactions either benign (e.g., urticaria) or life-threating (.e.g, anaphylaxis).
Pediatric allergists/immunologists treat autoimmune disorders affecting the pediatric group, as well as immunocompromising disorders such as SCID, DiGeorge syndrome, and chronic granulomatous disease. These diseases often have syndromic presentations that may be overlooked if clinical suspicion is not present. But to remain knowledgeable about such conditions can help you recognize them and, one day, save a child’s life.
