Rinkel's lectures have been presented in some 30 postgraduate courses during the past 10 years, attended chiefly by otolaryngologists, but also by pediatricians, dermatologists, internists, and general practitioners who have recognized the remarkable effectiveness of Rinkel's methods.

Dr. Rinkel, a Kansas City internist, became interested in allergy for otolaryngologists through Dr. French K. Hansel, from whom he first acquired the concept of minute optimum dosage therapy for inhalant allergies.1 To Hansel's astute and original observations Rinkel has added refinements of skin titration to determine the effective optimum dosage. In addition to his pioneer work in the minute dosage management of inhalant allergies, Rinkel's original methods of diagnosis and therapy of food allergy have contributed a brilliant new chapter to the science of
