Roe allergy is a rare condition and few cases can be found in the literature, although some cases of allergy to trout roe have been reported.
We report the case of a patient allergic to trout roe. A 28-year-old man with a history of allergic rhinitis caused by sensitization to mites presented with pharyngeal pruritus and bronchospasm, with associated dyspnea, immediately after consumption of trout roe. The dyspnea resolved spontaneously in 30 minutes.
Twenty-four hours later, the patient presented similar symptoms, again after eating trout roe.
