Food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) is a non IgE mediated allergic disorder induced by food protein that presents in young infants. It is characterized by persistent vomiting associated to diarrhea, lethargy, pallor or hypotension presenting 1-4 hours after the ingestion of the triggering food. The most frequent triggers are cows’s milk and soy, but solid foods have also been described as triggers, including potato.
