The practicing allergist has the unique opportunity to see an extraordinary variety of fascinating patients. Identifying the precise cause of the patient's complaints makes for a satisfying intellectual endeavor. This is exemplified by the description of nine cases seen in a university allergy clinic. The cases include uncommon pets such as monkey, hedgehog, and iguana; occupational allergens such as slime mold and nematodes; household exposure to spider and lady bugs; and recreational exposure to earthworms and algae. Instituting environmental control measures results in a gratifying response in the patient.
