Krakow welcomed the Skin allergy meeting (SAM) from 18 to 20 September 2014. More than 190 attendees from 39 countries and 26 speakers contributed to the success of this international event. Specialists in dermatology, allergy and clinical immunology, pediatrics and basic sciences had the chance to get acquainted with the novel findings in the field of cutaneous allergic diseases.
For the first time the three day program was structured on disease-based sessions, topics included atopic and contact dermatitis, skin drug adverse reactions, urticaria, anaphylaxis, mastocytosis, food allergy and the skin and others. The highlight in each session were the pro- and con- debate on the selected topics such as the role of patch testing in children with eczema and the importance of skin testing in drug allergy. Last but not least practical demonstrations on different topics were carried out, e.g. patch testing, and the use of autoinjectors, which were highly valued by the delegates.
The poster session as well as the oral communications gave the chance to youngsters to present rare and intriguing clinical studies and results from their studies.
The warm an friendly atmosphere created by the organizers in the face of the SAM chairs, Radoslaw Spiewak and Carsten Bindslev-Jensen, the Polish Society of Allergology, the EAACI dermatology section, and the EAACI officers, contributed to the success of the meeting. The delegates enjoyed nice weather in the great city of Krakow- rich in historical and cultural activities.
EAACI offered an unique opportunity to all delegates as each registered participant could get a free registration for one intern. In addition to the travel grants, this gave the chance to lots of young colleagues to meet face to face with the most designated researchers in the field of skin allergy.
