Abstract

Although anaphylaxis is rare in children, the potential for a rapidly fatal outcome requires that physicians caring for children be able to rapidly recognize anaphylaxis and initiate appropriate treatment. In children, foods, especially peanut products, are the most common cause of anaphylaxis, but many other allergens may also cause anaphylaxis. For acute treatment, aqueous epinephrine is the drug of choice. Long-term management requires accurate diagnosis and careful education of the patient and parents to prevent reoccurrence.
