Purpose of reviewThe purpose of the present review is to describe the epidemiology of food-induced, medication-induced, drug-induced, and insect sting-induced anaphylaxis; to summarize recent changes in the incidence of anaphylaxis internationally; and to discuss recent insights into potential risk factors for anaphylaxis. Recent findingsRecent studies confirm that the incidence of anaphylaxis, particularly food-induced anaphylaxis, is increasing world-wide. The rise in anaphylaxis incidence… Expand
Anaphylaxis: epidemiology, aetiology and relevance for the clinic
TLDR
This review summarises the findings from recent studies on the epidemiology and aetiology of anaphylaxis and draws on the insights from this work and recent international guidelines to consider the implications for clinical care. Expand
Prevalence of Anaphylaxis among children 3 to 18 years old in Kuweit
TLDR
Clinicians need to pay special attention to patients who have not experienced an anaphylactic reaction previously as they may not be aware of the underlying trigger for their reaction and may experience atypical signs and symptoms as opposed to the classic criteria. Expand
[Food-associated anaphylaxis. Data from the anaphylaxis registry].
TLDR
Data is provided on food allergens such as peas and cauliflower, which have been reported as rare causes of anaphylaxis, and the relevance of augmentation factors is most likely age-dependent, whereas co-morbidities including atopic diseases like atopic dermatitis and allergic asthma occur frequently in children suffering from food-dependent anaphYLaxis.

One-year survey of paediatric anaphylaxis in an allergy department.
TLDR
In the paediatric population, the main triggering agent of anaphylaxis was IgE-mediated food allergy andEpinephrine is underused, as reported by others. Expand

Predictors of the Severity and Serious Outcomes of Anaphylaxis in Korean Adults: A Multicenter Retrospective Case Study
TLDR
Drug-associated anaphylaxis, a history of allergic disease, multi-organ involvement, and older age, were identified as predictors of serious outcomes. Expand

TLDR
The purpose of this article is to highlight the differential clinical presentations of young children with anaphylaxis, particularly among infants 13 months of age or younger who are nonverbal and may have subtle signs and symptoms of a life-threatening reaction to allergens. Expand
Anaphylaxis in a tertiary adult allergy clinic: a retrospective review of 516 patients.
TLDR
The second pattern of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) and the FAAN diagnostic criteria for anaphylaxis predominated among adult patients, and drugs were the leading triggering factor, followed by Hymenoptera stings, foods, latex, and exercise. Expand

TLDR
Food allergy was the most common overall cause of anaphylaxis, with peanut the most frequent food trigger, according to a retrospective electronic medical record review spanning 12 years. Expand
Drug-induced anaphylaxis survey in Portuguese Allergy Departments.
TLDR
NSAIDs were the most common cause of anaphylaxis in Portugal and were also associated with a higher rate of recurrence, and the risk was higher when NSAIDs were involved. Expand

Higher incidence of pediatric anaphylaxis in northern areas of the United States.
TLDR
The incidence of pediatric anaphylaxis in the United States is scrutinized with a specific focus on a north-south comparison, and cases per 1,000 encounters with a 2-sided P value of less than .05 are calculated. Expand

TLDR
Patients with asthma have a greater risk of anaphylaxis than those without asthma, and the risk is greater in severe than nonsevere asthma. Expand

TLDR
The incidence, mortality rate, and clinical features of Korean patients with anaphylaxis were similar to rates for patients from other countries, despite some differences in causative agents. Expand
Asthma and the prospective risk of anaphylactic shock and other allergy diagnoses in a large integrated health care delivery system.
TLDR
In this insured population, asthma was prospectively associated with increased risk of anaphylactic shock and other allergy diagnoses, however, the effect of asthma severity was not consistent across outcome measures. Expand
Fatalities due to anaphylactic reactions to foods.
TLDR
Fatal anaphylactic reactions to foods are continuing to occur, and better characterization might lead to better prevention, and peanuts and tree nuts accounted for more than 90% of the fatalities. Expand
Fatal anaphylaxis in the UK, 1992-2001.
TLDR
The danger of epinephrine overdose and its limitations in reversing anaphylaxis must be recognized and the patient should remain supine with legs raised throughout sting and other shock reactions. Expand

TLDR
5 patients aged 9 to 20 years old who presented at a local tertiary hospital over a 2-year period from August 2006 to July 2008, presenting with urticaria, 4 were hypotensive, 2 had angioedema and another 2 had dyspnoea, and diagnosis of FDEIA was only reached upon referral to an allergist. Expand
