We encountered 3 patients with symptoms of oral allergy syndrome (OAS) and anaphylactic reactions to soymilk. CAP-RAST analysis showed negative findings for soybean but was positive for Glym4. These patients also had past history of birch pollen allergy and/or OAS in response to certain fruits. These cases all seemed to have class 2 food allergies based on the cross-reactivity between pollen allergens and antigens in soymilk. Prick test for soymilk and detection of IgE antibodies to Glym4 were considered useful for diagnosis of soymilk allergy. All previously reported cases were female. Thus, one of the present cases is the first male patient reported in Japan.
