The number of reports regarding sesame seed food allergy (SFA) has increased significantly worldwide over the past two decades, either due to a genuine increase in SFA or merely an increase in its awareness. Its prevalence is difficult to estimate due to the lack of well designed prospective population-based studies. Based on the available data, we estimate that SFA affects 0.1–0.2 % of the population, in areas where the food is available. Albeit this prevalence appears to be relatively low, it… 

Hypersensitivities to sesame and other common edible seeds

The English literature from January 1930 to March 2016 is reviewed using PubMed and Google Scholar searching for publications relevant to hypersensitivity to common edible seeds, namely sesame, sunflower seed, poppy seed, pumpkin seed, flaxseed, and mustard seed to address the important role of a thorough history taking in suspecting seed allergy.

Sesame allergies: clinical significance, diagnosis, and therapy

Beside diagnostic measurements including skin tests, detection of IgE antibodies and oral provocation tests, the education of patients with sesame allergy is of particular importance, and differentiated, component-based IgE diagnostic testing is desirable.

Food Allergy in Lebanon: Is Sesame Seed the "Middle Eastern" Peanut

A randomly sampled, cross-sectional serology test-based survey was conducted in Lebanon to describe the pattern of food allergy among Lebanese population, and specific IgE to peanut in infants, children, and adults were higher than for sesame, peanut-induced allergic reactions were mild.

Sesame food allergy and sensitization in children: the natural history and long‐term follow‐up

SFA tends to appear early in life, but unlike cow's milk and egg allergy, persists in 80% of the cases, and typical reactions combined with positive sesame SPT are reliable for diagnosis.
