Hypersensitivity Reactions

Anaphylaxis Type I
Allergic rhinitis (hay fever) Type I
Asthma Type I
Eczema Type I
IgE mediated: free Ag cross-links IgE on presensitized mast cells and basophils --> trigger release of vasoactive amines Type I
Ab mediated: IgM, IgG bind fixed Ag on cell--> lysis by complement or phagocytosis Type II
Immune complex mediated: Ag-Ab complex activates complement --> attract neutrophils --> neutrophils release lysosomal enzymes Type III
Delayed (T-cell) mediated: sensitized T lymphocytes encounter Ag --> release lymphokines --> macrophage activation Type IV
Contact dermatitis Type IV
Allergic rhinitis & anaphylaxis Type I
Hemolytic anemia Type II
Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura Type II

Multiple sclerosis Type IV
Guillain-Barre syndrome Type IV
Hashimoto thyroiditis Type IV
Graft vs host disease Type IV
PPD (TB test) Type IV
Contact dermatitis Type IV
Type II (Ab-mediated) IgM, IgG bind to Ag on "enemy" cell-->lysis or phagocytosis
Type III (immune complex) Ag-Ab complexes activate complement which attract PMNs who release dangerous substances
Type IV (delayed) Sensitized T cells encounter Ag and release lymphokines to activate macrophages
Type III (serum sickness) Fever, urticaria, arthralgias, proteinuria, lymphadenopathy 5-10 days after Ag exposure
