About the Division of Allergy and Immunology

At the Division of Allergy and Immunology at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), your child will receive comprehensive, high-quality care from a team of experts who practice family-centered care. That means your family will always be included in discussions related to your child's diagnosis, treatment plan and progress.

Conditions we treat

Our experts treat a broad range of common, rare and novel conditions. The conditions we treat often fall into two broad categories.


  • Some children have common allergic conditions such as asthma, eczema, or food allergies with anaphylaxis.
  • Children may have uncommon allergic conditions such as eosinophilic esophagitis, food protein induced enterocolitis, or drug allergies.

These conditions as well as other allergic conditions are treated by our Allergy Program.

  • Children who have recurrent, unusual, or severe infections may have a compromised immune system.
  • Some children may have unusual inflammation or autoimmune disease.

These conditions as well as other immunologic conditions are treated by our Immunology Program.
