Before more than 25 years, I followed a youger child asthma male patient. For several years he had good cotrol with inhaled steroid. And he had normal range tota IgE and mite IgE negative on 6 month to one year routine IgE examinations. He suddenly stopped inhaled steroid and visiting our hospital. After 6 months he visited our hosital with moderate asthma attack. His tatal IgE increased and mite IgE became positive. I recognized that inhaled steroid inhibits IgE increase by aging.
