Division of Pediatric Allergy & Immunology
The Division of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology at NYU Langone Health provides outpatient and inpatient consultative care for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults and their families. The division’s clinical services include diagnosis and treatment of food allergy, both IgE- and non–IgE-mediated (e.g., food protein–induced enterocolitis syndrome, or FPIES); anaphylaxis; atopic dermatitis; asthma; urticaria; angioedema; allergic rhinitis; and drug allergy.
The division works closely with registered dietitians, psychologists, social workers, and child life specialists at a pediatric allergy clinic at Fink Children’s Ambulatory Care Center, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, to offer comprehensive allergy care. Faculty also collaborate with the Divisions of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine, and Pediatric Otolaryngology, as well as with the Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology.
The division offers a four-week elective during which medical students and residents see patients at Fink Children’s Ambulatory Care Center and Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital—34th Street. This provides trainees with expertise in caring for pediatric patients with diverse allergic disorders that are relevant to pediatric practice.
Investigators’ research focuses on prevention of food allergy, immunotherapies for food allergy, and FPIES.
