Abstract

Exercise-induced (EI) hypersensitivity disorders are significant problems for both recreational and competitive athletes. These include Elasthma, Elbronchoconstriction, Erhinitis, Elanaphylaxis and Elurticaria. A group of experts from the European Academy of Allergology and Clinical Immunology and the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology met to discuss the pathogenesis of these disorders and how to diagnose and treat them, and then to develop a consensus report. Key words (exercise with asthma, bronchoconstriction, rhinitis, urticaria or anaphylaxis) were used to search Medline, the Cochrane database and related websites through February 2008 to obtain pertinent information which, along with personal reference databases and institutional experience with these disorders, were used to develop this report. The goal is to provide physicians with guidance in the diagnosis, understanding and management of EIhypersensitivity disorders to enable their patients to safely return to exercise-related activities.
