We also disagree that the measured tryptase levels support a diagnosis of an anaphylactic rather than an anaphylactoid
This case illustrates the importance in measuring a tryptase level following perioperative anaphylactoid
or anaphylactic reactions.
This was a retrospective analysis of patients referred between June 2000 and February 2007 to the Immunology unit at the John Hunter Hospital for assessment after an anaphylactic or anaphylactoid
reaction occurring during a general anaesthetic, as diagnosed by the anaesthetist managing the case.
One patient experienced an anaphylactoid
event with hypotension, as previously reported.
Acetadote is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity or previous anaphylactoid
reactions to acetylcysteine or any components of the preparation.
1] It was first described by Kounis and Zavras in 1991  as the concurrence of an allergic response with an anaphylactoid
or anaphylactic reaction and coronary artery spasm or even myocardial infarction.
Symptoms such as urticaria and anaphylactoid
reactions do not stem from true allergic reactions as one would expect after ingesting food or other immune-system-provoking substance.
Sometimes it's also called allergic purpura or anaphylactoid
This may lead to free iron reactions, which are anaphylactoid
in nature, but should not be confused with true allergic reactions seen with some IV iron products.
reactions have been reported in four women receiving intravenous or oral ranitidine during labor (Br.
The 10 other birds likely died of cardiopulmonary collapse and anaphylactoid
The concurrence of ACS with conditions associated with allergic or hypersensitivity and anaphylactic or anaphylactoid
reactions constitutes the Kounis syndrome (1).
In addition to comparing plasma histamine changes with changes in haemodynamic function, Fahmy (63) measured plasma adrenaline (epinephrine) and noradrenaline (norepinephrine) levels in a patient who had an anaphylactoid
reaction to intravenous morphine 0.
While the exact pathophysiology is not known, inflammatory mediators released in the setting of anaphylactic or anaphylactoid
reactions appear to be the primary mechanism leading to allergic angina syndromes.
Reactions to taxanes are clinically similar to type 1 hypersensitivity reactions but are actually believed to be anaphylactoid
