Nut anaphylaxis: case study
A 10 year old boy is referred for nutritional assessment and advice following an episode of anaphylaxis after eating muffin. He has a history of asthma and when he was a baby had eczema and an egg allergy which have both resolved. In this fascinating case where the anaphylaxis trigger is unknown, Vicki describes her management from diagnosis to ongoing care.
