Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a patient with severe anaphylactic shock immediately after injection of i.v. fluorescein. The patient recovered without sequela. Immunoglobulin E (IgE) mechanism was highly suggestive with significant increase in serum tryptase, positive basophil allergen threshold sensitivity (CD-sens) and histamine release tests towards fluorescein. This is, to our knowledge, the first report where CD-sens has been used to aid in diagnosing an IgE-mediated anaphylactic shock caused by fluorescein.
