MedLine Citation:
PMID:  7264104     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This report describes a hypersensitivity reaction to kiwi fruit in a patient who developed moderately severe generalized symptoms after handling the fruit. A search of the literature did not reveal any previous reference to kiwi-fruit sensitivity. It is suggested that IgE antibody is an important factor in the reaction.
