Specialized Care for Rare and Common Allergy Conditions
The Division of Allergy and Immunology has specialized clinics and closely collaborates with other centers and divisions within Cincinnati Children’s to provide comprehensive and personalized care to our patients. Our collaborative approach to evaluation, consultation, therapy and clinical research studies ensures that our patients receive the benefit of experts in several disciplines, which is important not only for the management of rare disorders (such as eosinophilic disorders, immune deficiency and histiocytic disorders) but also for more common conditions (such as allergies and asthma).
Our division hosts a specialized clinic for patients with allergic conditions, including food allergy.
Infant Food Allergy Clinic (BITE Clinic)
The Beginning Introduction To Allergens Early (BITE) Clinic specializes in the prevention, early identification and management of food allergy in infants. The BITE Clinic sees infants who may be at high risk for food allergy or who already have food allergies.
Our division hosts a specialized Eosinophilia Clinic for patients with peripheral blood and / or tissue eosinophilia and eosinophilic conditions.
