Conjunctivitis

This section deals with the clinical condition conjunctivitis, listing the relevant immunological test, together with a short explanation of its use.

Relevant immunological test: Allergen Specific IgE (limited association)

When the allergic reaction is strictly limited to the conjunctiva allergy tests are frequently negative. When conjunctivitis is part of a more generalised allergy, specific IgE and skin prick tests are usually positive for the causative allergen.
