ABSTRACT

Patterns of skin and bronchial reactions to the allergen were examined in thirty perennial asthmatics who showed a positive early cutaneous reaction (ECR) to the skin prick test with Dermatophagoides farinael. A dualcutaneous reaction (DCR) was elicited in nine subjects by the skin prick test and in twenty-four by the intradermal test. The size of the late cutaneous reaction (LCR) to the intradermal test was found to correlate with that of the preceding ECR. A bronchial provocation test resulted in no reaction in six, and isloated early asthmatic reaction (EAR) in three, and a dual asthmatic reaction (DAR) in twenty-one. A large LCR was associated with the occurrence of DAR and the patients with a large LCR required a lower allergen concentration to elicit an EAR.

Mentions: In the skin tests, LCRs were observed in nine subjects (33.3%) on the prick test, whereas they were observed in twenty-six (86.6%) on the intradermal test. There was a correlation between the size of the ECR and the size of the LCR on the intradermal test (r = 0.64, p<0.01) (Fig. 1). However, the size of the ECR had no relationship to the occurrence of the LCR on the prick test although there was no significant difference between the size of the ECR on the prick test and its size on the intradermal test. At the same time, patients whose ECR wheal sizes on the prick test were less than 5mm, elicited no LCR on the intradermal test.
