Tryptase: The history's the key. Autopsy can rule out other causes. The savvy pathologist can order up a serum tryptase to confirm anaphylaxis. It's a more tricky call than perhaps a TV viewer might guess. A few may be missed. Life-threatening allergies are well-known to the person, and they take sensible precautions and have time to alert others. ...Read more
