Abstract

In a 30-year-old chef with recurrent delayed angioedema history as well as the experimental detection of IgE antibodies against galactose-alpha-(1,3)-galactose (alpha-Gal) pointed to alpha-Gal as the causative agent. The diagnosis, therefore, was delayed anaphylaxis due to alpha-Gal. Because of the potential relationship to his profession, we submitted a dermatologist's report BK 5101 to the liability and insurance association, whereupon his contract of employment was terminated without notice. As a consequence, we reported an occupational disease. This case demonstrates an underdiagnosed, potentially life-threatening allergy to the disaccharide alpha-Gal in red meat as an occupational disease.
