Abstract

Anaphylaxis is a severe life threatening generalized or systemic hypersensitivity reaction that can affect all ages. The reaction originates from the discharge of chemical mediators released by either mast cells or by basophils activated after an allergic reaction or without any direct action of the immune system. Anaphylaxis usually develops gradually most often starting with skin manifestations and itching to a multiple organ reaction often dominated by severe asthma and culminating in hypotension and shock. In this work two clinical cases are presented. They are meant both to suggest the best therapy on the ground of evidence based medicine and to counsel the patient after his discharge.
