We must therefore make the best of whatever observations we can to find who may be affected, what triggers their reactions, the circumstances leading to the reaction, and why whatever treatment was applied had failed. In cases where the fatal reaction was not the first indication of a severe allergy, we can also study why allergen avoidance failed. While epidemiology of fatal anaphylaxis avoids the problem of deciding whether the ­reaction was severe enough to be classified as anaphylaxis, it leaves two key uncertainties: whether death was really due to anaphylaxis and whether the suggested trigger agent was really what caused the reaction.

Extrapolating from the cases reviewed so far, most of the “unidentified, ­unconfirmed” cases 2003–2005 will have been diagnosed as anaphylaxis on the basis of serum tryptase levels at autopsy and will be found to have low probability of anaphylaxis.
