Abstract

Immunologically mediated adverse reactions to milk and other ingested food antigens are more common in pediatric patients than adults. The study of food allergy in children has provided insights into the normal defense mechanisms of the gastrointestinal tract. The pathophysiology of food allergy in pediatric patients, as well as its clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and management, are discussed.
