Results Suppression of wheal responses was significant following antihistamine up to 20hr for both HPC and most allergens (15% to 70% wheal size in mm). 1mg/mL histamine appeared negative in some cases under suppression when the 6mg/mL histamine was positive. The lowered wheal size persisted in some subjects up to 72 hrs. Even though the HPC did not appear(More)
We present a patient with a refractive error of -3.00 -0.25x150 in the right eye and -3.50 -1.50x170 in the left eye who experienced bungee-cord-related corneal lacerations in the left eye. Slitlamp examination revealed a large radial corneal laceration in the vertical meridian and several smaller lacerations in the periphery. Corneal topography showed more(More)
