PATIENTS AND METHODS:
Seventeen patients were included. Most of them were male (14/17) and a high percentage (88%) had a history of allergy as well as a history of atopy in parents. Fifteen patients were sensitized to 1 or more foods. With this protocol and the subsequent treatment, 9 out of 17 patients were cured (1 out of 4 with swallowed corticosteroids, 3 out of 3 with an elemental diet, and 5 out of 12 with an avoidance diet). The offending food was identified in 8117 patients. Milk and eggs were the most common foods implicated.
The allergy study was a useful diagnostic tool but it was not sufficient to identify the offending food.An elemental diet should be attempted before food is excluded as the cause of the disease.
