By compiling insights from experts in different specialties, this book aims to support the medical literature and contribute to the collective knowledge on allergies. Although the causes and pathogenesis of allergic diseases in general are as described, this book is designed to be a guiding project by considering allergic diseases one by one and their causes, pathogenesis differences, and current treatments. A Handbook on Allergic Diseases serves as a valuable resource for healthcare professionals, researchers, and students interested in allergies and allergic diseases, offering a comprehensive overview of current knowledge and future directions in this important area of medicine.
