Abstract

Mites are ubiquitous organisms, and as a result, humans come into contact with mites and mite products in a variety of situations. Molecules from many mite species can induce IgE-mediated reactions. Best known among the allergy-causing mites are the house dust and storage mites. However, allergists should be aware that, in specific situations, contact with products of many other less-known species of mites also may cause IgE-mediated reactions.
