Data collection, checklist registered, including demographic information and data associated with sensitivity of skin prick test of 21 allergens were selected. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistical. Results: A number of 153 patients (83.2%) were allergic to one or more of the 21 allergens tested, whereas 31 patients (16.8) of them showed no sensitivity. The most common allergic reactions to insect allergens were 73 cases (47.7%), grass and turf 58 cases (37.9% percent), Beetle 55 cases (35.9%), wheat flour, 51 (33.3%) walnuts, 37 (24.4%) and cat fur 36 (5/23.5%) respectively..
