Abstract

A 15-year-old boy died after a 3 years' illness; asthmatic bronchitis, recurrent heart failure and eosinophilia were the essential manifestations. The autopsy elicited a diagnosis of allergic granulomatous angiitis, because of angiitis with fibrinoid necrosis and granulomatous lesions in vascular and extravascular regions. The most important differential diagnostic aspects of this disease are discussed, especially the resemblances to Wegener's granulomatosis, hypersensitivity angiitis and polyarteritis nodosa.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.
