Abstract Peanut allergy is an IgE-mediated food allergy responsible for causing severe and occasionally fatal reactions in those sensitized to peanuts. The prevalence of peanut allergy appears to be on the rise worldwide, yet there are no therapeutics currently available that can alter the course of this condition. This article will review the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and clinical features of peanut allergy and discuss future possibilities in diagnostic and therapeutic modalities.
