Abstract´╝Ü The atopic march reveals that infants with atopic dermatitis are prone to food allergy, allergic rhinitis and asthma later in life. The hygiene hypothesis holds that the cleaner the personal hygiene and environment, the higher the incidence rate of asthma and allergy. It is believed that Toll like receptors (TLRs) are the bridge between innate immunity and adaptive immunity, playing an important role in inflammatory and immune diseases. More and more evidence shows that TLRs, involved in the pathophysiology of atopic march, connect atopic march with hygiene hypothesis as a potential therapeutic target for asthma and allergy.
