Introduction: Asthma is a chronic inflammatory airway disease, with more present allergic component who cause disease. Pacient and Metods: In this study was included 35 patients who had been bronchial asthma whom was made total IgE determined by nefelometric metod and skin test by Prick metod. Subjects which had increased values of IgE, had been tested for fecal parasites . Subjects wich was positiv for scin allergens was tested for specific IgE on Hytec 288 instrument with ELISA metod. Results: Folowing resaults was obtained: 57.14% (20) of subjects had increased values of total IgE, while 42.86% (15) had normal total IgE. All patients with increased values of total IgE were tested negative for fecal parazites. Percent conform Prick tests and specific IgE was for house dust 54.55%, ragweed 53.85%, grass pollen 45.45%, Dermatophagoides Pteronyssinus 43.75%, Pollen trees 25.00%. Conclusion and Discussion: Allergic bronchial asthma capture big percent in patients with bronchial asthma. The most frequent allergen was house dust.
