Abstract

Skin testing was done on 30 patients with a history of anaphylactic reactions after a Hymenoptera sting and on 30 control subjects. The patients all had positive basophil histamine release to one or more venoms on challenge with the specific venoms used for skin testing (honey bee, yellow jacket, white faced hornet, yellow hornet and Polistes).
