Anisakis simplex is a helminth parasite belonging to the Nematode class.

In 1876, Leucckart described the first case of human parasitic disease in a Greenlander child, although anisakiasis started to be known in 1960. In 1990, Kasuya et al. suggested that this parasite should be considered as an etiological factor to be ruled out in the allergic reactions induced by fish. In 1995, Audicana et al. described the first case of Anisakis -induced anaphylaxis.
