Perhaps I should have chosen to discuss the more practical diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of allergy but I am particularly anxious to present some of the more recent tendencies in our thinking about allergy, particularly the rôle that the allergy concept is playing in Internal Medicine since it seems to concern itself so importantly with the pathogenesis of certain diseases, the etiology of which is at present unknown.
First, we must understand just what we are talking about when we use the word "allergy" or the term "allergic disease" and something of the nature of the reactions we may expect.
