BACKGROUND: Few studies assessing the use of epinephrine in drug-induced anaphylaxis (DIA) in the hospital setting are available. We utilized the Beijing Pharmacovigilance Database (BPD) to evaluate the appropriateness of epinephrine for DIA management. METHODS: DIA cases collected in the BPD from January 2004 to December 2014 were adjudicated and analyzed for demographics, causative drugs, clinical signs, outcomes, initial treatment, route, dosing, and cardiovascular adverse events (CAE) of epinephrine...

We report the first published case of confirmed anaphylaxis to sugammadex in a UK hospital. The patient was given a bolus of sugammadex at the end of surgery. Four minutes later, he developed hypotension and a widespread erythematous rash. Multiple epinephrine boluses were administered and a continuous intravenous infusion of epinephrine commenced. The patient later reported auditory awareness, which occurred while the diagnosis of anaphylaxis was being made and initial treatment initiated. Serial serum tryptase levels were consistent with a type I hypersensitivity reaction...

Typhoid Vaccine Live Oral Ty21a (Vivotif) is typically well tolerated, and adverse events are infrequent and mild. To the best of the authors' knowledge, only one prior anaphylactic reaction has previously been reported. We present a case of anaphylaxis related to Vivotif, in which a 66-year-old male with no medical comorbidities developed anaphylaxis following the third of a four-dose course (in the absence of concomitant vaccination administration), which consisted of tongue swelling, difficulty breathing, abdominal discomfort and rash...

OBJECTIVE: Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening event. Most clinical symptoms of anaphylaxis can be reversed by prompt intramuscular administration of epinephrine using an auto-injector or epinephrine drawn up in a syringe and delays and errors may be fatal. The aim of this scoping review is to identify and compare errors associated with use of epinephrine drawn up in a syringe versus epinephrine auto-injectors in order to assist hospitals as they choose which approach minimizes risk of adverse events for their patients...

Sesame is an important global allergen affecting ~0.1% of the North American population. It is a major cause of anaphylaxis in the Middle East and is the third most common food allergen in Israel. We conducted a systematic review of original articles published in the last 10 years regarding the diagnosis and management of sesame allergy. Skin prick testing appears to be a useful predictor of sesame allergy in infants, although data are less consistent in older children and adults. The diagnostic capacity of serum-specific immunoglobulin E is poor, especially in studies that used oral food challenges to confirm the diagnosis...

Perioperative anaphylaxis is an iatrogenic clinical condition, most often after anesthetic induction. Several mechanisms are implicated, including IgE- and non-IgE-mediated mechanisms. Perioperative anaphylaxis tends to be severe and has a higher mortality rate than anaphylaxis in other settings. This is partly due to factors that impair early recognition of anaphylaxis. Neuromuscular blocking agents, latex containing products, and antibiotics are the most common etiology. Chlorhexidine and dyes are increasingly culprits...

BACKGROUND: Epinephrine injection represents the standard of care for anaphylaxis treatment. It is most effective if delivered intramuscularly, whereas inadvertent intraosseous injection may be harmful. The needle length in current pediatric epinephrine autoinjectors (EAIs) is 12.7 mm; however, the ideal needle length for infants and toddlers weighing less than 15 kg is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To determine the skin-to-bone distance (STBD) and skin-to-muscle distance (STMD) at baseline and after simulated EAI application in infants and toddlers (weighing 7...

Anaphylaxis is defined as a serious allergic or hypersensitivity reaction in the most cases as a result of an IgE-mediated allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death. Common triggers are foods, insect stings, and medications. The medical treatment includes, epinephrine, glucocorticoids, antihistamines and inhaled bronchodilators, with the aim to prevent progression to life-threatening respiratory and/or cardiovascular symptoms.

Food allergy (FA) is a serious health problem, and severe FA such as food-induced anaphylaxis can often be life threatening. The incidence of FA has been increasing especially in children. They usually develop early in life and affect up to 10% of children. The 2 most common food allergens worldwide are milk and eggs, while the third one varies depending on the countries: peanuts in the United States and Switzerland, wheat in Germany and Japan, tree nuts in Spain, sesame in Israel, and walnuts in Korea. These common food allergens are different and difficult to identify because of differing study methodologies, population, geography, age, and dietary exposure patterns...

INTRODUCTION: Allergen immunotherapy is the only treatment option for allergic rhinitis with disease-altering potential. It was the objective of this study to assess the effectiveness and tolerability of a 5-grass pollen tablet in a large population of non-selected grass pollen allergic patients, i.e. patients with different clinical profiles in daily clinical practice. METHODS: In a 2-year, prospective, open-label, multicenter, non-controlled, observational study patients were included from 327 centers across Germany...

BACKGROUND: We present the first full case report of the treatment of mast cell activation syndrome with continuous diphenhydramine infusion, which resulted in the improvement of anaphylactic reactions and a decrease in hospital readmission. Furthermore, the patient received imatinib in the absence of the KIT-D816V mutation, which led to further improvement of quality of life. Currently, we are trying to wean this patient off diphenhydramine; if successful, this attempt will represent the first reported case...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to highlight the recent advances in food desensitization in children with food allergy. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent advancements in epicutaneous, sublingual, and oral immunotherapy for food allergy in the future may offer children with food allergy and their families a viable option to reduce risk or severity of anaphylaxis with phase III trials ongoing for two of these treatment modalities. Food allergy prevalence in children is estimated to be up to 8%...

BACKGROUND: The Michigan Legislature mandated that all public schools stock epinephrine auto-injectors (EAIs). A minimal amount is known regarding the incremental value of EAIs in schools. Our primary objective was to describe the frequency of administration of epinephrine for EMS patients with acute allergic reactions in public schools. Our secondary objective was to estimate the cost of mandating public schools to stock EAIs. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of EMS cases with an impression of allergic reaction and who received epinephrine recorded in the 2014 Michigan EMS Information System (MI-EMSIS)...

Chlorhexidine is an antiseptic and disinfectant used in surgical and clinical practice since 1954 and is available in aqueous or alcoholic solutions 0.5%-4.0% and has a broad-spectrum activity. Despite their widespread use, allergic reactions with chlorhexidine are rarely reported. We describe a case of anaphylaxis with chlorhexidine during a septoplasty, turbinectomy, and maxillary sinusectomy. The patient presented with periorbital edema, hives, hypotension, and wheezing. Immediately after the diagnosis of anaphylaxis promethazine, hydrocortisone, and epinephrine were administered with immediate clinical improvement...

Anaphylaxis is a rapidly progressing, life-threatening allergic reaction that needs rapid diagnosis and treatment. Recent research has brought new information about the increasing incidence of anaphylaxis. Nevertheless, the prevalence and incidence of anaphylaxis are difficult to estimate due to the lack of consensus on the definition of anaphylaxis, differences between the population groups analysed, and use of different data collection methods. The most common triggers of anaphylaxis are food allergens, insect stings, and drugs...

REVIEW
Scott P Commins
Anaphylactic fatalities are rare; however, mild reactions can rapidly progress to cardiovascular and respiratory arrest. The clinical course of anaphylaxis can be unpredictable. Prompt and early use of epinephrine should be considered. Most anaphylaxis episodes have an immunologic mechanism involving immunoglobulin E (IgE). Foods are the most common cause in children; medications and insect stings are more common in adults. When the cause is not completely avoidable or cannot be determined, a patient should be supplied with autoinjectable epinephrine and be instructed its use...
