  • The wheezy infant and toddler asthmatic - a primary care approach : the
           Cas Motala Memorial Lecture

    • Authors: R.J. Green; A.C. Jeevarathnum A. Van Niekerk
      Abstract: Wheeze is common in infants and young children. Asthma is but one cause and it is obviously important to exclude or include as it is amenable to specific therapy. It is also obvious that the pre-school or young child is not just a smaller variety of the older child or adult and this is especially true of asthma, where special situations exist with regard to diagnosis and treatment. Although there is a differential diagnosis for the major symptoms that constitute asthma in this age group, no child should be left to wheeze or cough without the possibility of asthma being considered and excluded. New guidelines and reports suggest that differentiation of virally induced wheeze from multi-trigger wheeze (or toddler asthma) is less important than making an attempt to manage the child. If an infant, or young child, has a chronic wheeze and is atopic or responds to a bronchodilator, asthma is more likely and therapy should be tried. If, however, there is no response to the therapy, investigate for other causes. Remember that in South Africa wheeze may also be produced by chronic infections, gastro-oesophageal reflux, cardiac failure, cystic fibrosis and a host of other sinister conditions. Therapeutically, for mild and intermittent wheeze the choice of inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) or a leukotriene antagonist may be valuable options. Therapy is intermittent and should be started pre-emptively. However, for more severe and frequent symptoms regular use of ICS (moderate dose) is clearly the best therapeutic option.

  • The asthma-COPD overlap syndrome : what is it and how should we treat
           it' : guest review

    • Authors: G.M. Ainslie; G.M. Ainslie
      Abstract: Asthma and COPD are two distinct diseases but may overlap, especially in older patients. Typically, asthma patients have marked variability in their airflow obstruction with significant reversibility in response to both bronchodilator and corticosteroid therapy. However, it has become increasingly clear that many patients with asthma may develop fixed airflow obstruction, whereas many patients with COPD exhibit some bronchodilator reversibility. The term 'Asthma-COPD Overlap Syndrome' (ACOS) has been coined to describe patients who have features of both but, as yet, there is no validated definition for the combination of features. Patients with ACOS have worse outcomes than those with asthma or COPD alone: more frequent exacerbations, poorer quality of life, more rapid decline in lung function, higher mortality and greater healthcare use. The Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) and the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) have recently published guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with asthma, COPD or ACOS.

  • Multiple-drug intolerance syndrome Case records from the
           multi-disciplinary drug hypersensitivity clinic : guest review

    • Authors: J.G. Peter
      Abstract: Multiple-drug intolerance syndrome (MDIS) is a condition where patients experience adverse drug reactions to three or more unrelated drugs. The immunological mechanism is unknown, hence the preferred labelling as 'intolerance' as opposed to 'allergy'. MDIS prevalence in South Africa is unknown, but may be as high as 2.1% according to international electronic medical record data. The majority of specialist physicians have encountered these complicated, sometimes frustrating, but always challenging patients.MDIS patients have high rates of healthcare and medication use, and are highly prone to developing new adverse drug reactions. Risk factors include female gender and multiple non-life-threatening co-morbidities, but not atopy. Antibiotics, particularly cephalosporins and quinolones, together with NSAIDs are the common offending drug classes. The severity of reactions is often overestimated, but life-threatening anaphylaxis or severe cutaneous drug reactions are reported. Optimal management involves the judicious use of drug provocation testing in a safe environment to provide patients and treating physicians with safe drugs as and when medically indicated. Multiple costly in vitro and in vivo drug allergy testing should be limited. This brief review first presents an illustrative case from our newly established multi-disciplinary drug hypersensitivity clinic and then provides a literature review on the risk factors, proposed mechanisms and optimal management of MDIS.

  • A diagnostic approach to chronic cough in children : guest review

    • Authors: F.E. Kritzinger; F.E. Kritzinger
      Abstract: Chronic cough, defined by the majority of studies and guidelines as a cough that lasts longer than four weeks, is common in the paediatric population, but the true prevalence and burden of disease remains difficult to define. It is now understood that the aetiology of chronic cough in children differs from that in adults. Children with chronic cough should be managed with paediatric-specific algorithms because those who are treated in this manner have improved clinical outcomes. Recent studies have focused on protracted bacterial bronchitis as a major cause of chronic cough in pre-school children and its role as a possible precursor of bronchiectasis. Recognising those children with possibly serious underlying diseases is critical to preventing delayed diagnosis and poor outcomes. However, it is equally important not to over-investigate those children who have an isolated non-specific cough. Clinicians should be familiar with the vast list of important causes of a chronic cough as well as the history-taking and clinical skill to define patients at risk of having a potentially serious disease in order to manage them timeously and appropriately.

  • Paediatric nasal obstruction - a practical approach : guest review

    • Authors: O. Raynham
      Abstract: Nasal obstruction and subsequent partial upper-airway obstruction can result in troublesome morbidity for the child. It is one of the most common reasons for the presentation of children to the doctor, whether allergologist, paediatrician, general practitioner or ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeon. This article offers a straightforward and practical approach to managing the most common causes of nasal obstruction in the paediatric population.

  • Eosinophilic oesophagitis in children : management options for inducing
           and maintaining disease control : guest review

    • Authors: M.A. Furman
      Abstract: Over the past decade the incidence of eosinophilic oesophagitis (EoE) has risen significantly and has become a common condition seen in paediatric gastroenterology centres around the world. The association with atopic disease is well known, and treatment options remain concentrated on acid suppression, dietary eliminations and topical corticosteroids. One of the greatest challenges is planning long-term disease management. Currently there is little published data on maintenance treatment for EoE in children. Many children remain on long-term elimination diets or topical steroids and undergo multiple repeat endoscopies. Large multicentre studies are required to gain a better understanding of this challenging condition, to standardise maintenance treatment and to find better methods for reliable disease surveillance.

  • Clinician integrity, patient autonomy and the patient's best interests :
           ethics

    • Authors: S. Kling; S. Kling
      Abstract: 'I wish my life and decisions to depend on myself, not on external forces of whatever kind. I wish to be the instrument of my own, not of other men's acts or will. I wish to be a subject, not an object: to be moved by reasons, by conscious purposes, which are my own, not causes which affect me, as it were, from outside. I wish to be somebody, not nobody: a doer - deciding, not being decided for, self-directed and not acted upon by external nature or by other men as if I were a thing, or an animal, or a slave ... I wish, above all, to be conscious of myself as a thinking, willing, active being, bearing responsibility for my choices and able to explain them by references to my own ideas and purposes.'

  • Allergies and other occupational diseases in the hairdressing industry :
           allergies in the workplace

    • Authors: Vania Chongo-Faruk
      Abstract: The demand for cosmetic and hairdressing services is high. The hairdressing industry has grown to become an important source of wealth and income internationally, with informal salons and hairdressing being more common in low-income settings. The daily exposure to a wide variety of repetitive practices, substances and chemicals puts hairdressers at an increased health risk for some conditions - particularly on the skin and respiratory and musculoskeletal systems - as the workers are exposed to a diverse range of chemicals (irritants and allergens) and ergonomic risk factors. By means of a case study we illustrate the challenges a medical practitioner faces in trying to identify the causal agent responsible for a health condition at work in a trade where products contain numerous changing chemicals, yet the same chemicals may be ingredients in personal hygiene products, food and medicines to which the worker is non-occupationally exposed. It indicates the necessity of identifying the potentially hazardous chemicals through good detective work, including a detailed workplace visit and report, an exposure and task-directed history of work, hobbies and activities of daily living together with relevant special investigations in order to achieve the best management of the clinical condition.

  • Egg allergy : ABC of allergy

    • Abstract: Dr Do-a-Lot's student presents short notes on egg allergy: Egg is a common cause of allergic reactions in children. Egg allergy occurs in about 2% of infants and children and is often present in the first year of life, especially in children with eczema. Most egg-allergic children develop tolerance to egg proteins in early childhood, but in cases where levels of antibodies to ovomucoid are high it is less likely that the allergy will be outgrown.

  • Allergy to apple seeds in a peanut-allergic child : case report

    • Authors: E. Tankama
      Abstract: Allergic reactions to fruits are commonly described, resulting most frequently in symptoms of the oral allergy syndrome (pollen fruit syndrome), and less often in more severe reactions and anaphylaxis. The flesh or pulp of the fruit is most commonly the cause of such reactions. Less commonly described are allergic reactions to the seeds ('pips') of fruits, reported in only a handful of case reports, but probably under-recognised. This case report describes a young boy, with a known allergy to peanuts, who experiences an allergic reaction when biting into seeds of both apples and watermelons, but is tolerant of the fruit pulp. It is one of very few cases in the literature that describe an allergy to a non-citrus fruit seed.

      Abstract: Macrophage activation syndrome (MAS) is an uncommon condition in which hyperinflammation and excessive cytokine release lead to excessive stimulation of T-lymphocytes and macrophages and result in a characteristic clinical picture of haematological dysfunction and multiple organ failure. This condition occurs most commonly in the context of inflammatory conditions such as systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (sJIA). MAS is currently classified as one of the forms of secondary haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). The diagnosis of MAS is clinically important as specific therapy may be required and a missed diagnosis may lead to high mortality. Unfortunately, the diagnosis is often not easily made due to the broad range of presenting features and their overlap with other potential complications of sJIA, such as severe infection. Also, no single clinical or laboratory test is able to diagnose MAS conclusively. In this review we highlight some of the most important clinical and laboratory features, diagnostic criteria, outcomes and management of MAS.

  • Guest editorial

    • Authors: Claudia Gray
      Abstract: What an honour it is to be Guest Editor for this second 2016 edition of Current Allergy and Clinical Immunologywith the theme 'Advances in Food Allergy'. In this edition, the 'advances' in the world of food allergy have been divided up into advances in laboratory diagnosis, advances in dietary management and advances in oral immunotherapy as a possible 'treatment' for food allergy. We also take a glimpse at newly recognised forms of food allergy, with the example of alpha gal allergy causing a delayed reaction to red meat.

  • Advances in the laboratory diagnosis of food allergy : guest review

    • Authors: C. Van Rooyen; S. Van den Berg
      Abstract: A great number of advances have been made in the diagnostic tools and testing methods available for food allergy diagnosis. Improved and new methodologies have become available not only to identify the presence of a food allergy, but also to aid in determining the severity of an allergy, the likelihood of its resolution and potential cross-reactivity with other allergens. Cross-activity may include that between biologically related and unrelated foods or even between inhalant allergens. These testing methods may also improve patient outcomes by helping clinicians to provide accurate dietary advice and reduce the need for food challenges.

  • Advances in the dietary management of food allergy : guest review

    • Authors: R. Meyer; A.C. Lozinsky
      Abstract: Food allergies have increased in the past 20 years. Research into dietary management has also escalated, playing an integral role from diagnosis to management and, more recently, including tolerance induction and prevention. This overview article is aimed at reviewing recent advances in the dietary management of both Immunoglobulin E (IgE)-mediated and non-IgE-mediated food allergy, focusing on new research related to dietary elimination, food challenges, prevention in sensitised children through early introduction and tolerance induction through dietary manipulation of foods. The review concludes that the time for dietary elimination in non-IgE-mediated allergies and the type of elimination diet in EoE are now better understood and favour the SFED.

  • Oral immunotherapy for food allergy : guest review

    • Authors: A. Nowak-Wegrzyn; E. Albin
      Abstract: The IgE-mediated food allergy associated with risk for fatal anaphylaxis has been the subject of multiple immunotherapy studies in the past decade. The growing body of evidence suggests that for IgE-mediated food allergy immunomodulation through food immunotherapy is possible; however, the extent of protection provided by such treatment is highly variable. The capacity for food immunotherapy to restore permanent oral tolerance to food has not been demonstrated conclusively. In this review we discuss the most relevant studies of food oral immunotherapy.

  • 'Midnight anaphylaxis' to red meat in patients with alpha-gal
           sensitisation : a recent discovery in the food allergy world and a case
           report from South Africa : guest review

    • Authors: C.L. Gray; A. Van Zyl L. Strauss
      Abstract: A syndrome of delayed anaphylaxis to red meat, occurring in geographical 'clusters' initially identified in the United States, was first described in 2009. A few years later, this enigmatic anaphylactic reaction was ascribed to IgE antibodies to galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose (alphagal), an oligosaccharide, which is a major blood group substance in non-primate mammals. It appears that the predominant source of sensitisation to alpha-gal is bites from certain ticks. Since 2009, several hundreds to thousands of cases of delayed red-meat allergy have been described worldwide, but very few reports have come out of Africa. This case series describes 2 cases of an acquired form of delayed anaphylaxis to beef and mutton in patients who were subsequently found to be highly sensitised to alpha-gal, residing in the same region.

  • Food allergy : a human rights issue' : ethics

    • Authors: S. Kling
      Abstract: 'Human rights are entitlements people can claim relating to their basic needs because they are human.' The original conception of human rights was to protect individuals from abuse by the state, and so they were referred to as 'first generation' rights. These rights included civil and political rights, such as freedom of speech, freedom to vote and choose political associations, and freedom of movement. Socio-economic rights were referred to as 'second generation' rights. However, nowadays all types of rights are seen as equally important and so these classifications have fallen away. Human rights are considered to be universal, even though cultural differences exist in society.
