The factors are considered separately as hereditary, psychic, endocrine, nasal and toxic. The second part discusses the individual manifestations of allergy, asthma, hay fever, cutaneous allergy (including eczema), migraine, headache, epilepsy, food allergy, bacterial allergy and drug and serum reactions.
