Occasionally, non IgE-mediated food allergy can be responsible for more serious conditions such as eosinophilic eosophagitis, proctocolitis and food protein induced enterocolitis syndromes (FPIES).
These delayed reactions commonly involve the gastrointestinal tract (e.g., food protein-induced enteropathy, proctocolitis, or eosinophilic oesophagitis) or skin (eczema).[15]
Non-IgE-mediated conditions include combined IgE- and cell-mediated conditions, such as atopic dermatitis and eosinophilic oesophagitis, and pure T-cell-mediated conditions, such as food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome, allergic proctocolitis and enteropathy syndromes.
