To the editor: Again this year I am compiling case reports of allergic reactions to biting insects, that is, mosquitoes, fleas, gnats, kissing bugs, bedbugs, chiggers, black flies, horseflies, sandflies, and deerflies.
I would like physicians to supply me with case reports of those patients who have had reactions to such insects. Include in your reports the type of reaction and complications, if any, the age, sex, and race of the patient, the site of the bite(s), the season of the year, the immediate symptoms, the skin test results, desensitization results, if any, and any associated other allergies.
