Abstract

A 13-year-old girl who had had pollinosis since the age of eight began to experience itching of the ears and vomiting after eating fresh fruits such as peach, apple and watermelon. This occurred at 10 years of age. The girl displayed positive reactions to six kinds of pollens, eleven kinds of fruits, numerous vegetables and to recombinant: rBet v2 present in specific IgE antibodies. She also reacted positively to several pollens, fruits and rBet v2 in the skin prick test. In the component-resolved diagnosis (CRD) using microarray technology, she also tested positive for profilin, a pan-allergen among plants. It is reported that profilin cross-reacts between pollen, fruits, vegetables and latex. From these results, we concluded that the allergic reactions to multiple kinds of foodstuff and pollens observed in this subject were due to cross-reactivity induced by profilin. Our results demonstrate that CRD by microarray is a reliable test in the diagnosis of PFAS.
