Food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) is a non-IgE-mediated food hypersensitivity reaction characterized by severe vomiting, diarrhoea, lethargy and dehydration approximately 2 hours after introduction of the causal protein. Symptoms typically resolve after the causal protein is removed from the diet and recur with a characteristic symptom pattern on re-exposure. FPIES diagnosis is mostly based on clinical symptoms and should be considered in infants presenting with severe gastrointestinal complaints. A dietary history indicating that a new food has been introduced in the last few hours may facilitate earlier identification of the syndrome. In this study we report a case of FPIES hyperreactivity to yolk in a 7-month boy.
