IgE-mediated allergy to fungal allergens was found in 8.1% out of 4174 patients undergoing skin prick test with commercial extracts. The most frequently involved fungi were A. Alternata (which accounted for 67% skin prick test positivities) and C. herbarum (14%). Monosensitization to fungi was very rare (6% of sensitized subjects) and was less frequently associated with asthma (38%) as compared to polysensitization (52% of subjects also sensitized to other inhalant allergens).

Abstract

IgE-mediated allergy to fungal allergens was found in 8.1% out of 4174 patients undergoing skin prick test with commercial extracts. The most frequently involved fungi were A. Alternata (which accounted for 67% skin prick test positivities) and C. herbarum (14%). Monosensitization to fungi was very rare (6% of sensitized subjects) and was less frequently associated with asthma (38%) as compared to polysensitization (52% of subjects also sensitized to other inhalant allergens).
