ANAPHYLAXIS

Dictionary of Tropical Medicine

An immediate (and potentially health- or life-threatening) hypersensitivity reaction produced by the body’s immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies to a foreign substance (antigen); the a?ected tissues release histamine which causes local or systemic attack. An example is the pain, swelling, eruption, fever and sometimes collapse that may occur after a wasp sting or ingestion of peanut in a particularly sensitive person. Some people may su?er from anaphylaxis as a result of allergy to other foods or substances such as animal hair or plant leaves. On rare occasions a person may be so sensitive that anaphylaxis may lead to profound SHOCK and collapse which, unless the a?ected person receives urgent medical attention, including injection of ADRENALINE, may cause death.
