Anaphylaxis is a severe, life-threatening reaction, usually manifested by cutaneous, respiratory, cardiovascular, and gastrointestinal symptoms. It is important to perform allergologic tests in subjects who have suffered anaphylactic reactions in order to identify the etiologic agents (foods, drugs, hymenoptera stings etc.) and clarify the pathogenic mechanism. Together with the identification of any risk factors, this approach may prevent further reactions.
