Human mankind is aware of the existence of adverse reactions to foods since classical times. Hippocrates (460-370 BC) reported urticaria and gastrointestinal upset following cow's milk (CM) ingestion. Lucretius (98-55 BC) wrote "Quod aliiscibus estaliis fuatacre venenum". Galen (131- 219) described allergy to goat's milk. At the turn of this century the first description of acute shock due to CM allergy was published, and Schloss was the first to evaluate skin tests for the diagnosis.
