We study the case of a child with anaphylaxis to grapes without reaction to grape seed oil. The child presented no skin reaction and the mother reported no adverse effects associated with the use of this bath oil. Because the lack of adverse effects could be due to both dilution and transient contact of the bath oil a patch test with immediate (after 30 min) and delayed (after 48 and 96 h) reading was performed. The patch preparations with the oil were applied with Finn Chambers on Scampor following the IRDGC recommendations. Immediate and delayed reading of the patch test was negative thus demonstrating the absence of contaminating Vitis vinifera proteins in the grape seed oil.

Abstract

We study the case of a child with anaphylaxis to grapes without reaction to grape seed oil. The child presented no skin reaction and the mother reported no adverse effects associated with the use of this bath oil. Because the lack of adverse effects could be due to both dilution and transient contact of the bath oil a patch test with immediate (after 30 min) and delayed (after 48 and 96 h) reading was performed. The patch preparations with the oil were applied with Finn Chambers on Scampor following the IRDGC recommendations. Immediate and delayed reading of the patch test was negative thus demonstrating the absence of contaminating Vitis vinifera proteins in the grape seed oil.
