Serum immunoglobulin E levels in relation to adenoid surgery.
Serum immunoglobulin E levels in relation to adenoid surgery.

Abstract
El tejido adenoideo es un órgano linfoide inmunocompetente que tiene la capacidad de reaccionar contra numerosos antígenos. Hemos estudiado la influencia que tendría la eliminación de dicho tejido sobre los niveles de IgE sérica total. Se han estudiado a 33 pacientes con una media de edad de cinco años y criterios de adenoidectomía, a los que se les ha medido la IgE sérica total antes y después de la intervención. No se han obtenido diferencias estadísticamente significativas en los valores de IgE tras adenoidectomía con respecto a los previos que eran normales. La adenoidectomía al igual que otros autores han hallado tras la amigdalectomía, no altera los valores séricos de la IgE.
Abstract
The adenoid tissue is an immunecompetent lymphoid organ, which has the capacity of reacting against numerous antigens. We have studied the influence that the elimination of the said tissue would have on the total IgE serum levels in 33 patients of an average age of 5 and criteria of adenoidectomy and in whom these levels were measured before and after surgery. We have not noticed any statistically significant differences in the IgE values after adenoidectomy with respect to those prior to surgery, which were normal. Adenoidectomy, like other authors have observed after tonsillectomy, does not alter the IgE serum values.
