The Division of Allergy and Immunology at Boston Children’s Hospital diagnoses and treats children, adolescents and adults with allergic disorders and immunodeficiencies. This can include common allergy-related problems, such as food- and pet-allergies, eczema and asthma, as well as more complex and rare immunodeficiencies, such as Hyper-IgM, in which the immune system fails to produce certain antibodies.
