Food-dependent exercise-induced anaphylaxis (FDEIA) is a rare, but serious in terms of the symptoms category of the food allergy. In the course of the classical form of FDEIA repetitive and often life-threatening symptoms occur after exercise preceded by ingestion of the sensitizes food. This type of anaphylaxis frequently affects the active and young people who consume food with high calorific value and containing a potential allergen because exercise increases the absorption of food allergens from the gastrointestinal tract. For patients with FDEIA, in the prevention of this disease it is important to avoid consuming such foods at least a few hours before the scheduled exercises, and the patient should also be provided with a pre-filled syringe containing adrenaline, which is the drug of choice of time developing the symptoms of anaphylactic shock. In this paper, we present a case of patient in who, on the basis of information obtained from the interview and the whole diagnostic tests, food-dependent exercise-induced anaphylaxis was diagnosed.
