Respiratory fungal allergy. Microbes Infect 2000 Jul;2(9):1101-10 PMID: 10967290

Abstract

Fungal allergy including allergic rhinitis, conjunctivitis, bronchial asthma, and allergic bronchopulmonary mycoses results from exposure to spores. In this review we have dealt with the common allergenic fungi and allergens, immunopathogenesis, diagnostic assays, and the possible control of allergy in the future based on epitope-specific immunotherapy and vaccination.
