KNUT BROCKOW A1, KNUT BROCKOW A2, KNUT BROCKOW A3, KNUT BROCKOW A1, KNUT BROCKOW A2, KNUT BROCKOW A3, KNUT BROCKOW
Oranges are suspected of inducing adverse skin reactions in patients with atopic eczema. We studied 21 adult patients with atopic eczema and a history of adverse reactions to oranges and 10 patients without. A dietary history, skin tests, serum IgE and oral provocation tests with oranges were obtained. Severity of eczema was monitored by SCORAD, and serum tryptase, eosinophil cationic protein and ...
