Food allergy represents one of the most intriguing fields in atopic patients. Novel knowledges on pathogenesis in which the skin represents a possible route of sensitization have opened new clinical and therapeutic approaches. Component-resolved diagnosis with recombinant allergens has improved the diagnosis and also the clinical decision, even if in some cases it has increased the uncertainty about the need of prescribing adrenaline.
Pediatric patients are also the field in which we should find innovative procedures to prevent the evolution of allergic diseases toward respiratory allergic diseases. Better understanding of pathogenesis and treatment means more appropriate restricted diets and improvement in the quality of life of children and their parents.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to update knowledge on epidemiology, pathogenesis, and treatment in children with food allergies.
We remain at your disposal for additional questions.
