Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Allergic hinitis represents an important health problem affecting 10-25% of the general population, and is increasing worldwoide. This chronic inflammatory disease represent a risk factor for the development of asthma, impact on patients’ social life, school performance, work productivity, and has a large impact on healthcare resource use.

Allergic rhinitis and allergic asthma constitutes two different expression of a single entity recently named allergic respiratory disease (ARD). The clinical management of these patients, including an accurate and unified allergen diagnose and the selection of the appropriate etiologic treatment (allergen immunotherapy), constitute an excellent example of precission and personalized medicine.

For such a common condition, it is perhaps surprising that there are still so many unanswered questions about the phenotypes and endotypes of allergic rhinitis and its main multimorbidities (asthma, conjunctivitis), possible strategies for its fast and accurate diagnosis, and the best options of treating the disease and preventing its progression.

The main objective of this Special Issue of the journal is to reflect the current controversies, diagnostic challenges, and new therapeutic insights in the clinical management of patients with allergic rhinitis.
