Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study was intended to evaluate the incidence of atopic diseases and spectrum of clinical allergic manifestation in Polish infants from North-East region of Poland in relation to genetic hereditance. The infants included in the study were unselected, born consecutively during the first three months of 1993. It was demonstrated that 39% of infants developed an atopic disease during first year of life, 70% in high-risk of allergy group and 18% in low-risk of allergy group. The difference was statistically significant (p < 0.0005). The common atopic manifestation in children was atopic dermatitis. It was recorded in 70% of babies with and in 12% of babies without a family history of atopy.
