Hypersensitivity Reactions type IV PhD. student kefah F.Hasson 2014

Characteristics  Interaction of primed T cells and associated antigen 

Involve reactions by T memory cells.

Reactions are delayed by one or more days (delayed

type hypersensitivity -DTH) . Infiltration of Mononuclear Cells ( Inflammatory response).

Delayed is relative because DTH response arise 2472 hours after exposure rather than within minutes.  Delay is due to migration of macrophages and T cells to

site of foreign antigens.

Reactions are frequently displayed on the skin:

itching, reddness, swelling, pain

Mechanism of type IV hypersensitivity 1) Inflammation and tissue injury mediated by CD4+Th1. Immune injury mainly caused by infiltration of mononuclear cells and lymphocytes , release cytokines .

2) Cytotoxicity of CD8+CTL

BACTERIA M.tuberculosis Brucella abortus Listeria monocytogen 

Virus Measles Herpes simplex 

Fungus Histoplasma Candida  protozoa Leishmania  Others 

Ivy poison Hairs dye Metals poison Nickel salts


Effector phase

Diseases of Type IV (Cell-Mediated) : 1) Infectious delayed type hypersensitivity like : OT( Old Tuberculin ) test. 2) Contact dermatitis :like water blister . 3) Acute rejection of allogenic transplantation .
