This newest text covers the field of stinging insect allergy thoroughly. It delves into the entomologic aspects of Hymenoptera (bees, vespids, wasps and ants) insects, which cause nearly all the IgE mediated reactions due to insects, and looks at all the clinical aspects of stinging insect allergy, including diagnosis and therapeutic recommendations. Detailed chapters single out and examine the unique aspects of some of the more common Hymenoptera species, such as bees and fire ants. The book also reviews what is known about non-Hymenoptera biting insects, such as mosquitoes. In addition, there are several chapters that deal with the overlap of Hymenoptera allergy as practiced in North America and other areas and sciences. These include chapters dealing with the European experience, which is not always the same as what is seen in North America. These chapters serve to bolster information in other chapters, in some cases providing reinforcement for recommendations, while in other cases expanding potential options. There are also chapters dealing with the impact ecology is having on insect allergy and the impact insect allergy is having on other areas of medicine, such as mast cell disorders. Stinging Insect Allergy: A Clinician’s Guide is ideal for medical students, residents, allergists, and general practitioners, and serves as an important reference text for any practitioner of allergy and immunology who desires a complete picture of Hymenoptera and non-Hymenoptera insect allergy.
