Abstract

The experience of the last several years shows that allergic hypersensitivity symptoms in gastroallergic anisakiasis are clinical events accompanying a wide range of immunologic reactions as a host response against a ubiquitous parasite. The discussed and reviewed studies should motivate allergists around the world to search for this entity. Further studies in the field of allergy could benefit from the experience of this peculiar food-related disorder.
