Anaphylaxis

Abstract

The term, “anaphylaxis” refers to a systemic, immediate hypersensitivity reaction resulting from IgE-mediated mast cell and/or basophil degranulation. This degranulation releases chemicals responsible for the clinical event. The term, “anaphylactoid reaction” refers to a clinically similar occurrence not mediated by IgE.
