In brief: Anaphylactoid reacti

Anaphylactoid reactions cannot be distinguished from anaphylactic reactions by the clinical symptoms.
The difference is solely in the mechanism by which allergic mediators (chemicals such as histamine) are released from blood mast cells. Anaphylactic reactions are caused by allergic antibody (ige).
