Abstract

The cross sensitivity between ingestive and inhalative allergens from chicken eggs and bird feathers is often described. As similar cross reacting antigen a protein component is hypothesized. Identical proteins in serum, feathers and feces of birds also in egg yolk (in livetin fraction) and in egg white are suspected to be allergen determinants. The difference between a bird-egg-syndrome or an egg-bird-syndrome can be seen in the patients history. In most cases the allergy appears if there has been a bird in the house. We describe the case of a young women who has had a budgie for a pet for 8 years. Since 3 years she has had an intolerance to eggs. Recently she has also shown an intolerance to feathers. The disease is mostly seen in atopical patients.
