Abstract

Food allergy is the most common single cause of anaphylaxis. About 4-6% of children and 3% of adults suffer from confirmed food allergy, which places a huge population at risk for anaphylaxis. This chapter provides an overview of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, pediatric considerations, risk factors, treatment, diagnosis, prevention, and natural history of food-induced anaphylaxis. With a growing population of food-allergic children and adults, who appear to have more severe and more persistent food allergies, new therapies are vigorously sought and are also reviewed here.
