|Description||a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for patients, their care-givers and healthcare professionals. Multisystemic manifestations of anaphylaxis without any specific pathognomonic symptom make a decision in a critical situation, often requiring immediate treatment, quite difficult. If not recognized and adequately treated in time, especially without immediate adrenaline administration, anaphylaxis may lead to fatal outcome. Clear identification of the causative allergen and its strict elimination significantly reduces the burden of patients and their caregivers. Equipping each patient with rescue kit, repeated (lifelong) education, detailed information about variability of situations that require immediate administration of rescue medication and the proper procedure of adrenaline administration including practical training are essential parts of patient care. We present a case report of a girl who developed anaphylactic reaction shortly after eating ice cream. This reaction was not adequately managed although her mother was equipped with anaphylaxis rescue kit. Due to complex diagnostic approach the causative allergen was identified and no further allergic “accidents” have been reported so far|
