Abstract

Objective: High serum IgE and eosinophil counts are laboratory features of severe atopic dermatitis (AD), persistent food allergies and severe allergic asthma as well as some primary immune deficiencies (PID), especially hyperIgE syndrome (HIES). Our objective was to define cut-off values to discriminate atopic diseases and HIES by comparing serum IgE, eosinophil levels, allergen sensitizations among patients with AD, IgE-mediated food allergy, allergic asthma and/or rhinitis, chronic granulomatous disease and HIES.
