Abstract

Background: Urticaria is a condition characterized by short-lived swellings of the skin, mouth, and genitalia due to transient leakage of plasma from small blood vessels into the surrounding connective tissues. Although infectious agents such as bacteria and virus causing acute urticaria have been reported previously, very little research has been carried out to understand the relationship between parasitosis and urticaria. This study was designed to contribute to the understanding of the relationship between parasitosis and urticaria.
