Allergic disease has no one common denominator but may be due to various causes. Tests with allergenic substances are important but not infallible, and should not be the sole criteria of clinical sensitivity. They should not be employed indiscriminately. Much progress in utilizing all forms of modern medical treatment has been made. Finally, in treating patients with allergic disease, kindness and consideration remain the attributes that distinguish good allergists.
