To the editor: I am compiling case reports of allergic reactions to biting insects, that is, mosquitos, fleas, kissing bugs, bed bugs, gnats, and flies—including horsefly, sandfly, and deerfly. I am also interested in reactions to fire ants.
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 history of the type of reaction, and complications if any; the immediate treatment; and, if descensitization was attempted, what were the results? Send these to me at: 4-C Doctors Park, Asheville, N. C. 28801.
