  1. Asthma caused by live fish bait.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Larvae of insects and worms are commonly used as live fish bait (LFB) by anglers.

    Asthma, rhinoconjunctivitis, and urticaria related to various kinds of LFB have been reported.

    Methods

    We studied 14 subjects with respiratory symptoms associated with closure to LFB.

    Skin prick tests and RASTs with Lucilia caesar, Galleria mellonella, and Tenebrio molitor extracts were carried out in all subjects.

    Monitoring of peak expiratory flow rate and evaluation of bronchial responsiveness to methacholine before and after exposure to LFB were performed in seven subjects.

    Results

    Thirteen subjects had asthma, all 14 had rhinoconjunctivitis, and three had contact urticaria.
