Atopic dermatitis is associated with food allergies. The aim of this study is to evaluate soy allergy in patients suffering from atopic dermatitis. Altogether 228 persons were included; specific IgE, skin prick tests, atopy patch tests, challenge tests with soy and history of soy allergy
were evaluated. Soy allergy was confirmed in eight patients (3.5%, in four patients with worsening of atopic dermatitis, in four patients with oral allergy syndrome), sensitisation to soy was found in another 47 patients (20%) with no clinical manifestation after soy ingestion. Dependence
was confirmed statistically between soy allergy and pollen allergy and soy sensitivity and pollen allergy. About 20% of patients suffering from atopic dermatitis are sensitised to soy. Clinical symptoms of soy allergy occur only in 3.5% of patients suffering from atopic dermatitis.
