Abstract

Recurrent urticaria is a frequent presenting complaint in the Allergy Clinic, despite the fact that chronic urticaria is not an IgE-mediated (atopic) condition in most cases. We present four cases assessed over 5 years in our allergy service who were found to have evidence of strongyloidiasis and whose clinical features resolved with standard anti-helminth treatment.
