Fatal anaphylaxis after eating wild boar meat in a patient with pork-cat syndrome

Fatal anaphylaxis after eating wild boar meat in a patient with pork-cat syndrome

Allergie et Immunologie 33(4): 163-165

Crossed allergy between pork and cat epithelia was described by us in 1994. It is due to serum albumin. Nowadays, other bio-chemical observations allow "completion" of the syndrome by extension of the crossed reactivity between other mammal meats and other epithelia of dog and horse. The authors report an observation of the pork-cat syndrome (developing in the form of anaphylaxis, and then ending in the death of the patient), following consumption of wild boar meat. Co-factors, such as effort, taking alcohol or hormonal condition may complicate the picture to make diagnosis more difficult.
