抜粋

A 43-year-old woman presented with oral discomfort, sneezing, urticaria, eyelid angioedema, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, dyspnoea and wheeze soon after eating a Japanese flour pancake (okonomiyaki, containing wheat, egg, yam, pork, prawn and squid). Subsequent analysis of the flour used in the pancake revealed the presence of Dermatophagoides farinae (4500 mites/g). The patient tested positive for specific IgE to D. farinae (15.2 kU/L) and D. pteronyssinus (14.0 kU/L) with negative responses to other ingredients in the pancake. Oral ingestion of dust mite in poorly stored foods can cause anaphylactic reactions in patients with allergy.
