Terminal Ileitis Induced by Wheat Proteins Allergy: A Case Report

Girao Popolizio I, Longo Areso N, Bartolomé Zavala B, Arruti Oyarzabal N, Frías Jimenez M, Uriel Villate O and Audicana Berasategui MT

We describe a case report of terminal ileitis and mesenteric adenitis by IgE-mediated allergy to wheat after detecting the culprit proteins by basophil activation test and SDS-PAGE immunoblotting. Gastrointestinal symptoms and terminal ileitis was resolved by avoiding the causative agent. We emphasize the need for a multidisciplinary clinical approach in order to achieve a definitive diagnosis and optimal treatment.
