Title
Le syndrome cannabis-fruits et légumes : une mise au point
Author
Abstract
In a large number of cases, particularly adolescents and adults, allergies to fruits and vegetables result from cross-reactivity between allergens from different sources. The best-known examples are the oral allergy syndrome in tree (birch) pollen allergy, the latex-fruit syndrome and the LTP (lipid transfer protein) syndrome, which is predominantly recognized in the Mediterranean basin and seems to be due to primary sensitization to peaches. However, in our European region, it has emerged that sensitization to these LTPs might also be due to other primary sensitizations, such as Cannabis sativa (marihuana). In this review, we will discuss the clinical manifestations, allergens and diagnostic approach of the IgE-mediated cannabisfruit/vegetable syndrome that seems to extend beyond fruits and vegetables.
