Abstract

LTP (lipid transfer proteins) are a family of proteins present in different foods. The symptomatology of allergy to LTP is highly variable, ranging from mild to systemic. Sometimes, symptoms are only present in the presence of cofactors.

We present the case of an 11-year-old female patient who presented to the emergency department with anaphylaxis following previous ingestion of fruit while doing physical exercise, highlighting the importance of the clinical history and diagnostic suspicion in the approach to this entity.
