Abstract

Allergy to latex and to banana is probably uncommon. Cross-reactivity between these two antigens has been recently demonstrated, but the clinical association of allergic reactions to latex contact and banana ingestion is extremely rare. We report a 3-year-old boy who developed an anaphylactic reaction following banana ingestion and who presented an associated immediate hypersensitivity to latex.
