Cannabis-fruit and vegetable syndrome is of recent discovery and linked to lipid transfer protein (LTP) sensitization. It is thought that the primary sensitization originates from the cannabis LTP (Can s 3). Sensitized patients can cross-react to others LTP homologs such as peach LTP (Pru p 3). Diagnosis may be challenging, as consumption of cannabis is often omitted by the patient and needs to be specifically addressed during the interview. Thus, meticulous history taking is mandatory. Laboratory workup includes LTP-specific IgE and skin testing. Management relies on allergen eviction.
