Northwestern University is an educational and research institution. The faculty of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine provide clinical patient care through affiliated hospitals and practice plans. Below are helpful links and information for patients and referring physicians.
Through Feinberg-affiliated care sites, faculty members of the Division of Allergy-Immunology treat a wide variety of patients with diverse clinical conditions. Northwestern Medicine and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago physicians are known for important discoveries in asthma caused by occupational exposure, aspergillus colonization and common allergens. Interests include severe asthma, asthma exacerbations, asthma in the elderly, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, airways infections by rhinovirus and influenza, and asthma in underrepresented minorities round out the emphasis on asthma. Clinical interest and expertise in chronic rhinosinusitis, respiratory allergies, immunodeficiencies, eosinophil-related disorders, cutaneous diseases (e.g. urticaria, Stevens-Johnson, toxic epidermal necrolysis, eczema, vasculitis, drug allergies, etc.), food allergy, anaphylaxis, gastrointestinal allergy and others can be found among our faculty.
Northwestern Medicine and Lurie Children’s clinical service is highly collaborative, including relationships with:
- Otorhinolaryngology that focus on sinus disease
- Gastroenterology that focus on eosinophilic esophagitis
- Pediatrics that focus on immunodeficiency and food allergy
- Pulmonary that focus on asthma
- Dermatology that focus on eczema
Northwestern Medicine's allergy-immunology CLIA lab has performed diagnostic tests for identification of cases of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), allergic bronchopulmonary mycosis (ABPM), hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) and occupational immunologic lung disease (OILD) since 1972. Please visit the CLIA lab to learn how these high quality tests can assist physicians and their patients with these conditions.
