Abstract

Food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome is a non-IgE-mediated food allergy that typically occurs within the first year of age and it is often misdiagnosed for its rarity. This syndrome is usually caused by milk or soy in formula-fed infants, but it can also be associated to solid food proteins, fruit proteins included. We describe and discuss the first case of an infant with mild acute/lateform ofFPIES due to banana only.
