Marple and Mabry (both: otolaryngology, U. of Texas Southwestern Medical Center) lead a group of experts in covering well-established methodologies of intradermal dilutional testing (IDT) and modified quantitative testing (MQT) and how these techniques can work together. They cover the evolution of skin testing in otolaryngic allergy, preparing the office for skin testing, antigen choice for skin testing, whealing responses to intradermal testing as the basis for IDT, the mechanics and interpretation of IDT and of multiple-prick testing, blending methods in MQT, vial preparation and immunology based on quantitative testing, and prevention and management of anaphylaxis. The book includes a glossary of common terms and aeroallergen panels.
