Abstract: Alpha-gal allergy, also known as, mammalian meat allergy (MMA) is well described in the Allergy literature, however, the Anesthesiology literature remains soft in supporting recommendations for perioperative management. The goal of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is to better understand the pathogenesis, signs and symptoms, and prevention of this delayed anaphylactic reaction compared to the rapid onset of most food allergies, especially immunoglobulin E (IgE) mediated allergy.
