Allergic disorders result from an inappropriate, usually IgE-mediated, immune response upon exposure to either environmental or food allergens.

Common manifestations of allergy include rhinoconjunctivitis, asthma, eczema, acute urticaria and anaphylaxis. Disorders, such as chronic urticaria, hereditary angioedema and T-cell dermatitis (metal allergy), while clinically similar in some ways, are not IgE-mediated.

Allergic disease manifests in different ways through life and the likely causative agents can also change with age.
