Abstract

Abstract Severe reactions due to hypersensitivity to sesame seed are characterized by oral and palatal pruritis, generalized erythema, wheezing, and clinical shock. Such reactions are usually preceded by milder ones, which, if promptly and correctly diagnosed, may prevent clinical progression of symptoms by elimination of the offending food from the diet. Sesame oil ingestion has not produced any similar clinical reactions, to our knowledge. The total consumption of sesame seed in the United States is increasing, a fact which suggests that the incidence of sesame seed hypersensitivity will probably increase in like proportion.
