Anaphylaxis due to carrot as hidden food allergen.

Carrot is frequently involved in food allergies and oral allergy syndromes, usually in association with other foods. Nevertheless, carrot alone is rarely responsible for severe systemic reactions. We report a case of anaphylactic shock due to the inadvertent ingestion of carrot as a hidden allergen contained in an ice-cream. The etiological role of carrot in provoking the symptoms was thoroughly ascertained through appropriate in vivo and in vitro assays and by excluding, through double-blind placebo-controlled challenge, the involvement of other ingredients of the food.We highlight once again the harm and risks due to hidden food allergens contained in commercial preparations and the importance of thorough patient education and information.[1]
