The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Anaphylactic insults that cause cardiovascular signs and symptoms have been defined as Kounis syndrome, which has been associated with specific triggered anaphylactic reactions. Kounis syndrome has not been described in patients with no evidence of coronary artery disease (type I Kounis) in a scenario of idiopathic anaphylaxis. We reported a case of a 65-year-old white woman with no evidence of coronary artery disease who experienced two myocardial infarctions on separate occasions attributable to idiopathic anaphylaxis.
