Five cases of severe anaphylaxis to lychee have been registered by the Allergyvigilance network over 2006-2010. Literature is reviewed including six cases. The global analysis points to the young age, the frequency of angioedema localized at larynx, tongue, uvula, lips and face, and the frequency of an associated sensitization to mugwort pollen. Some cases have associated food allergy to Anacardiaceae (mango or pistachio), sunflower seeds, Apiaceae (celery, parsley), apple and banana. Causal allergens may be Lit c1, thermostable profilin, cross reacting with pollens and latex profilines, and a 70. KDA allergen. The authors underline a possible rising frequency of anaphylaxis to lychee since these five cases have been declared over the past 5. years and represent 0.8% of cases of food anaphylaxis registered by the Allergyvigilance network. © 2012 Elsevier Masson SAS.

The prevalence of mango allergy is about 0.2 % out of all food allergies. The Allergy vigilance network reports 10 cases of severe mango anaphylaxis. Nine patients are women. Eight subjects are sensitized to mugwort pollen, and two to birch pollen. Six patients have food allergy to Apiaceae and two to pistachio, another Anacardiacea. The reaction was elicited by an industrial juice in four cases. Data about cross-reactivity with Art v 1, Bet v 1, Bet v 6, Api g 1, Api g 2, Dau c 1 and two thermostable major allergens are discussed as well as the cross reactivity between mango seeds and cashew nut. The potential risk of cross allergy between mango and tree nuts that are Anacardiaceae is a source of concern, because of the increasing consumption of cashew nut in France. © 2010.
