Summary of new guidelines for GPs to help patients with Pollen Food Syndrome

In August this year we announced the publication of the BSACI Guideline for the diagnosis and management of Pollen Food Syndrome/Oral Allergy Syndrome in Clinical & Experimental Allergy (CEA).

Pollen Food Syndrome is a common, IgE-mediated food allergy, characterised by immediate, mild oropharyngeal symptoms after the consumption of raw plant foods due to cross reactions between pollen antibodies and unstable plant food allergens. This condition can often be managed in primary care, and this guidance contains a leaflet specifically designed for use by GPs.

Medscape Guidelines has produced a summary of the guideline. The summary provides key points for each sub-section of the full guideline. To access the summary click here.
