||Case study of a 21-year-old baker regularly suffering from skin urticaria when handling pumpkin seeds. Three years earlier, this patient developed an allergy that caused the swelling of the pharynx and swallowing difficulties after he had eaten bread containing pumpkin seeds. Prick tests revealed an immediate sensitization to raw and roasted pumpkin seeds. There are no literature reports of similar cases of allergy to pumpkin seed in the form of food intolerance and occupational allergic contact urticaria.
