Abstract

In Japan, the prevalence of food allergy has been increasing and a variety of problems have emerged regarding what should be considered a food allergy. A treatment regimen consists of avoiding the offending food (elimination diet therapy) and receiving nourishment from alternative foods (substitutional diet therapy). There is a growing concern that confusion has resulted from the lack of a consensus on the procedures for diagnosing and treating food allergies. The Food Allergy Committee of the Japanese Society of Pediatric Allergy and Clinical Immunology established the "Guidelines for Diagnosis and Management of Pediatric Food Allergy." Definition, classification, pathophysiology, clinical disorders and management of food allergy are discussed and determined.
