Diagnostic Value of Neutrophil Lymphocyte Ratio in Allergy Patients

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.242
Synopsis: 
This study was conducted to investigate the association between NLR and the progression of the disease in the cases of acute allergic reactions. The significantly high NLR in acute allergic reaction cases in this study suggests that it may be a useful diagnostic parameter in allergic reactions.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: We aimed to investigate the relationship between the neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and clinical characteristics of acute allergic reaction patients diagnosed in an emergency clinic

Material and methods: The medical records of the patients with a diagnosis of acute allergic reaction that presented to Dicle University Medical Faculty Hospital Emergency Department

Surgical Excision and Autograft after Allergic Reaction to Tattoo Ink: A Case Report

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.304
Pages: 
572-74

ABSTRACT

A 29-year old female patient suffered a hypersensitivity reaction after having a tattoo placed on the supra-malleolar area of her right leg. Among other substances, the tattoo ink used contained red dye. Since the allergic reaction and its subsequent complications were recalcitrant to conventional medical treatment, it was finally necessary to surgically remove the tattoo and cover the area with an autograft.
