In addition, after the allergic reaction, all patients tolerated poultry meat, indicating that a-livetin (quail albumin) was not involved in any of these cases. The difficulty in obtaining a QE yolk sample without QE white contamination, as reported elsewhere , could explain the positive results for QE yolk in the SPPT and immunoblotting assay. Although allergy to QE-with or without HE sensitivityhas been reported [2,3,8,9], ours is the first case series in which the causative proteins were identified. We found only 1 case of non-IgE-mediated food hypersensitivity reaction to QE . In conclusion, in the 5 patients we report, the main QE allergen is ovalbumin. Although proteins from HE and QE showed cross-reactivity, patients commonly tolerate HE consumption even when they have QE allergy. Since patients with QE allergy can show different HE skin test results (positive SPT and/or SSPT and/or specific IgE to HE proteins, with good tolerance to HE), these results should not be used to predict intolerance to HE.
