“…There was a high frequency of raised total IgE in 40.7% of our study population, which corroborates the findings of other studies that used pediatric populations with HIV [8,11,17,18]. In addition, the groups with raised IgE levels presented more clinically advanced stages than the normal IgE group; however, no difference was detected in terms of immunological staging.…”

“…The most frequent symptom was rhinitis, followed by asthma and eczema. Studies have shown a prevalence of allergic disease in the pediatric population with HIV that ranged from 10% to 52% [8,9,17-19]. These studies used various methods to diagnose allergy, including atopy investigation using total IgE titration [8,17,18], RAST [18] and/or skin patch testing for allergens [8,9,19].…”

“…Various hypotheses had been postulated by previous researchers and they included antigenic challenges from infectious agents such as viruses and parasites. [20][21][22][23] It has also been documented that abnormal activation of B-cells in HIVinfected individuals leads to spontaneous proliferation and secretion of all immunoglobulins (hypergammaglobulinemia) with the gradient of increase being more with IgE than the other immunoglobulins.…”
