Abstract

Gastrointestinal food allergy, a well-recognized clinical entity, has a wide spectrum of clinical features, including cutaneous, respiratory and gastrointestinal symptoms and objective abnormalities. The gastrointestinal alterations in food allergy have been described throughout the gastrointestinal tract. Recurrent abdominal pain (RAP) is a common complaint in school-age children. The findings among children with RAP of an underlying food allergy associated with mucosal pathology of the foregut may support a causal relationship between food allergy and RAP. Further studies are needed to elucidate whether well-documented food allergy (based on double-blind placebo-controlled food challenges) is a major cause of RAP.
