Allergy to grape: a case report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We report a case of a 5-year-old child who suffered an oral allergy syndrome and lip angiedema after eating grapes. We obtained a positive prick test with commercial grape extract and a positive prick-by-prick test with pulp and peel of fresh white grape (Moscatel variety) and pulp and peel of blue grape. Sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis followed by immunoblotting revealed specific immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies in the patient's serum against a 94,000 molecular-weight antigenic band. Lip open challenge was positive.
