I have now been treating pediatric patients for allergy problems for 44 years and have always been interested in the association of allergy with urinary infections. Therefore the letters of Dr. Gerrard1 and his co-workers from the University of Saskatchewan and of Dr. Anne Harrison2 from Rochester, New York have interested me. In 1955 I presented a paper before the allergy section of the Academy of Pediatrics entitled Allergic Pyelitis,3 reporting two patients with recurrent urinary infections with pyuria, one cured completely with allergic management–the other’s genito-urinary infection recurred, but only in ragweed season.
