This issue of Acta Medica Croatica is dedicated to historical development and role of allergology and clinical immunology in Croatia. Also listed are the names of experts who have historically marked allergology and contributed to its development. Understanding the origin of allergies as immune phenomena occurred in Croatia simultaneously to many other European countries. The origin and development of institutions established in the early 1920s constituted the backbone of a solid vertical line, crucial for the development of allergology and immunology in Croatia during the past century. Interest of allergology experts from various medical specialties has resulted in the establishment of Allergy Section at the Croatian Medical Association in 1952, now Croatian Society of Allergology and Clinical Immunology of the Croatian Medical Association. It turned out that the work of institutions and physicians, as well as cooperation with the Croatian Immunological Society and other scientific institutions during the second half of the 20th century provided solid foundation for contemporary research, design and development of allergy subspecialty centers and units at various medical institutions all over Croatia. Members of the Croatian Society of Allergology and Clinical Immunology have played an important role in educating new generations of physicians and in the organization of numerous research projects, symposia, congresses and seminars. Continuous, scientific and professional work has resulted in active Society membership in the European Academy of Clinical Immunology and Allergology.
