Abstract:We present a case of a patient who developed two episodes of angioedema after taking acetylsalicylic acid orally. Specific IgE antibodies to acetylsalicylic human serum albumin (ASA-HSA) were found. A control group of 37 patients with aspirin intolerance was studied and evidence of specific IgE antibodies was not found. The follow-up of this case shows that in a short period of time the level of specific IgE antibody decreases to undetectable levels similar to the negative control population.
