CRESPI MONJO, M. et al. Probable hypersensitivity reaction to parenteral nutrition: a propos of a case. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2005, vol.20, n.3, pp.228-231. ISSN 1699-5198.

A probable case of hypersensitivity reaction to Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) in a 55 years old patient diagnosed with gastric adenocarcinoma is presented. Onset of TPN infusion coincides with the time of the onset of a disseminated pruritic cutaneous eruption that repeats after a second exposure to nutrition. The likely causes of this hypersensitivity reaction are analyzed.

Keywords : Parenteral nutrition; Allergy; Hypersensitivity.
