From a conceptual point of view, anaphylaxis is defined as a systemic disease, potentially serious and fatal, caused by the sudden and massive release of autacoid mediators, cytokines and other pro-inflammatory agents, generated by mast cells and basophils and triggered by immunological causes (usually mediated by IgE-allergen interactions) and non-immunological or unknown causes. Among the best known causes are food (47%), medications, hymenoptera venoms (13%), latex or physical exercise.
