The diagnosis of allergic reactions during anesthesia is difficult. For example, cardio-respiratory symptoms may be due to the accompanying pharmacological effects of anesthetics and poor interpretation of the reaction during anesthesia. It is important to distinguish whether a real allergic reaction has occurred. Accidents with anesthetics and muscle relaxants are observed more often than we expect. Proper anaphylaxis rarely occurs during anesthesia (1: 20000). Muscle relaxants are the most common causes, followed by latex, chlorhexidine, antibiotics and opioids...

BACKGROUND: The median age of the workforce, and of healthcare workers in particular, is increasing, resulting in a reduced work capacity. This may prompt the occupational physician to issue fitness for work limitations. OBJECTIVES: To examine the health surveillance data collected over 20 years on the employees of a large healthcare institution to identify the effects of the limitations imposed on their career paths. METHODS: The database of health surveillance records gathered over the years was analysed using the same dedicated software...

Food allergy is a public health concern almost all over the world. Although most of the countries that regulate the declaration of allergens in prepackaged foods include the list recommended by the Codex Alimentarius, some countries have added other allergens to this list due to prevalence data and regional incidence, whereas others have incorporated exceptions for some products derived from allergenic foods. Within this context, the situation in Latin America regarding these regulations is diverse. Data about prevalence of food hypersensitivity are very limited in the region...

BACKGROUND: Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) has become increasingly popular as a healthy food in Europe. However, for sensitized individuals, consumption can cause anaphylactic reactions. The aim of this study was to identify individual well-characterized buckwheat allergens for component resolved diagnosis. METHODS: Patients were selected by positive skin prick test to buckwheat and divided into two groups: (1) sensitized to buckwheat without clinical symptoms and (2) buckwheat allergy...

Latex allergy confounded by IV infiltration presents a serious problem for pediatric patients. If unrecognized, it can lead to serious neurologic deficits, loss of limb mobility, compartment syndrome, and ultimately lasting disability. Appropriate early recognition can prevent progression to these devastating outcomes. In this case report, we present an infant with IV infiltration and latex allergy. The case is used to highlight important clinical diagnostic criteria, treatment approaches, and how to prevent detrimental outcomes...

The diagnostic evaluation of perioperative anaphylaxia is of great importance for the medical care of the affected persons in the context of renewed interventions in general anesthesia. The most frequent triggers include muscle relaxants, antibiotics, latex and analgesics of the type of the cyclooxygenase inhibitors, but other perioperatively administered drugs such as opioids, anesthetics, benzodiazepines, dyes, disinfectants and even corticosteroids or drug additives may also be the cause in rare cases. The most important aim is therefore the identification of the responsible drug, for which a near-time allergological diagnosis should be carried out within the first 4 weeks to 6 months after the reaction...

AIMS: The prevalence rate of severe fecal incontinence (FI) in adults with spina bifida (SB) is high. The physiological basis of FI in SB has not been clearly established, which contributes to inadequate care. The aim was to better characterize a large cohort of adults with special consideration of anorectal physiology. METHODS: A multidisciplinary team from a French referral centre for SB prospectively collected data on patients who had an anorectal manometry. Factors associated with severe FI (Cleveland clinical incontinence score ≥ 9) were assessed in a multivariate analysis model...

Latex allergy emerged as an epidemic of anaphylaxis, occupational asthma, and clinical dilemmas in the 1980s. A systematic recognition, investigation, discovery, epidemiology, and prevention strategy followed. International attention and collaborations of investigators, government agencies, manufacturing, and health policy resulted in near elimination of a global epidemic. This article summarizes nearly 4 decades of work in control of this epidemic and focuses attention on future problems that still require resolution...

BACKGROUND: Allergic reaction to seminal plasma was described decades ago. In USA only tens of thousands women are estimated to be affected. Not only seminal plasma, but also cervico-vaginal fluid contains sex-restricted antigens, yet allergy to cervicovaginal fluid has never been reported in medical literature. We came to a suspicion that because immunologic tests required to prove such a diagnosis, allergy to cervicovaginal fluid has never been reported yet it is not uncommon. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to use an Internet-based questionnaire to characterize the population of men with suspected hypersensitivity to cervico-vaginal fluid...

Providing a safe environment for students at risk for anaphylaxis from a latex allergy requires care coordination and collaboration of all members of the school community. Strategies for allergy management include educating the school community, identifying potential exposure to latex, preparing to respond in an emergency, and creating a plan for the future. With the student at the center of sound planning, the school can provide a secure and healthy environment.

Profilin is a protein present in all eukaryotic cells, and is responsible for the cross-reactivity between pollen, latex and plant foods. It has been classically acknowledged as a minor or nearly irrelevant allergen, although recent data are changing this conception. The objective of this manuscript is to comprehensively review the published data on the role of this ubiquitous allergen in pollen, latex and plant food allergy. The patterns of recognition of this minor allergen follow a north-south gradient, and although present in all pollens and vegetables, it is significantly associated with grass pollen and Cucurbitaceae fruits...

Natural rubber latex (NRL) allergy is caused by the extractable latex proteins in dipped rubber products. It is a major concern for the consumers who are sensitive to the allergenic extractable proteins (EP) in products such as NRL gloves. Objective of this research was to develop an economical method to reduce the EP in finished dipped NRL products. In order to reduce the EP levels, two natural proteases, bromelain from pineapple and papain from papaya, were extracted and partially purified using (NH4)2SO4...

The exact prevalence of hypersensitivity reactions related to sexual behaviours is not known; however, they heavily impact on the quality of life and of sex life of affected patients. In fact, not only common respiratory and skin allergies, such as asthma, rhinitis, urticaria and atopic dermatitis, but also food and drug allergy have been found to negatively affect the quality of sex life. Allergic diseases impact on the sexual function in both physical and psychological ways, representing one of the main complaints of a considerable proportion of patients...

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...
