To the editor: Again this year I am compiling case reports of allergic reactions to biting insects, such as mosquitoes, fleas, gnats, kissing bugs, bedbugs, chiggers, black flies, horseflies, sandflies, deerflies, and so forth. I am also interested in reactions to the imported and southern 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 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;
