BACKGROUND: A history of penicillin allergy is associated with an increased risk of nosocomial infections because patients are exposed to non-beta lactam antibiotics. Ruling out inaccurate penicillin allergy during hospitalization decreases prescription of beta lactam antibiotics. However, the utilization of penicillin allergy testing and timeliness in relation to initiation of antibiotics is not known. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to describe the proportion and characteristics of patients who underwent inpatient penicillin allergy testing in a hospital without a guideline or infrastructure for inpatient penicillin allergy testing...

BACKGROUND: Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria (CSU) is an endogenous disorder that is strongly associated with autoimmunity, particularly with immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody to the alpha subunit of the IgE receptor seen in 35-40% of patients. Basophils and cutaneous mast cells can be activated and lead to a late-phase-like perivascular infiltration about small venules and hive formation. METHODS: Review of current literature. RESULTS: Antibody to thyroid antigens are seen in 25% of patients; a small fraction of these may be clinically hypothyroid (Hashimoto's Thyroiditis)...

BACKGROUND: Vaccines often contain potentially allergenic material in addition to pathogen-specific immunogens that may induce allergic reactions. Parents and physicians often suspect that adverse reactions to vaccines are allergic in etiology. The concern that some of the substances contained in vaccines may trigger an anaphylactic reaction may lead to a low vaccination adherence with emergence of infectious disease epidemics. OBJECTIVE: To provide practical suggestions for managing children suspected to have an allergic reaction to a vaccine...

BACKGROUND: After the promotion of the two-child policy in recent years, the population of children in mainland China was bound to have a rapid growth, which would bring great challenges to public health. A number of cross-sectional studies on the epidemic of childhood asthma in mainland China were recently conducted, and varied prevalences were reported. Thus, knowing the epidemiology of childhood asthma in mainland China is of great necessity. OBJECTIVE: Our study aimed to summarize the pooled prevalence of childhood asthma in mainland China and its time trend, gender difference, regional distribution, and age structure...
