To the Editor.—  I am compiling case reports of allergic reactions to biting insects, ie, mosquitoes, fleas, kissing bugs, bedbugs, gnats, and flies, including the horsefly, sandfly, and deerfly. I am also interested in reactions to fire ants.I would like physicians to supply me with case reports of those patients who have had reactions to such insects. Include in your reports the history of the type of reaction and complications, if any; the immediate treatment; and if desensitization was attempted, what the results were. Send the reports to 4-C Doctors Park, Asheville, NC 28801.
