Abstract

Latex allergy is a newly emerging problem. In the last decades its prevalence has increased progressively, especially among health care personnel and patients. Preventive measures have been suggested to reduce the risk of sensitization, but this is very difficult because of the ubiquity of latex products. Since only two clinical reports are available in the literature, suggesting that subcutaneous desensitizing treatments resulted in important side effects, we decided to attempt a desensitization through alternative routes. After having succeeded in carrying out sublingual desensitization, we report the case of a latex-allergic patient who successfully underwent percutaneous desensitization.
