Allergy diagnostic tests in children with initial diagnosis of atopic asthma or lower respiratory tract recurrent infections with bronchospasm
Anna Stasiak-Barmuta

The study was aimed to evaluate usufuluess of of allergic diagnostic tests in the differential diagnosis of bronchospastic symptoms in children. The study included 128 children, with initial diagnosis of atopic asthma and 91 children with initial diagnosis of lower respiratory tract recurrent infections accompanied with bronchoconstriction. In all patients skin prick test with common environmental allergens were performed, and total serum IgE and allergen-specific serum IgE were assayed.
The study demonstrated, that 56% of children with asthma diagnosis had positive skin prick tests, whereas serum specific IgE were found in 69%. Among children with the diagnosis of recurrent respiratory infections with bronchospastic reactions the occurrence of positive skin tests was 37%, while specific IgE were found in 29% of subjects. Total IgE concentration was similar in both groups studied.
These results indicate that differential diagnosis of bronchospastic reactions should involve a broad range of laboratory tests.
