Fish allergy is one of the most common food allergies. It is usually considered to be immunoglobulin (Ig) E-mediated and correlated well with diagnostic tests such as prick tests and/or specific IgE. Recommended treatment is avoidance, generally extended to all fishes. However, new clinical presentations have been described, including non-IgE-mediated disease, mono-sensitization, and new syndromes that are sometimes associated with surprising cross-reactivity. Advances in molecular allergy have provided insights into new allergens and have increased our understanding of cross-reactivity. This paper focuses on recent publications providing information for clinicians involved in the management of fish allergy.
