Abstract

In a group of patients treated in our Allergological Center with specific immunotherapy with Hymenoptera venom, we tested 7 patients clinically and immunologically: they were stinged by chance. Only 1 patient presented a large local pemphoid reaction. We found neither great alterations of total and specific IgE nor of skin tests before immunotherapy and in the follow-up. The spontaneous challenge could represent the best criterion to evaluate the effectiveness of specific immunotherapy.
