Abstract:Although not initiated by IgE-mediated mechanisms, anaphylactoid responses resemble anaphylactic reactions and thus may be responsible for a number of clinical states which simulate anaphylaxis or atopy. It, therefore, behooves allergists to be familiar with the mast cell and basophil secretory products which are responsible for both types of reactions and the growing list of agents which are known to be able to initiate anaphylactoid responses experimentally.
