A 27-year-old female developed a series of symptoms consistent with anaphylactic shock following intercourse and visited emergency department. After administration of epinephrine, corticosteroid and antihistamine, her symptoms improved. Previously, she had often developed urticaria after intercourse. However it was not so severe. Skin prick test using her husband’s diluted seminal plasma showed positive result. She was diagnosed as seminal plasma allergy and
advised to use condom until she wants to conceive. We report a case regarding human seminal plasma allergy presented as anaphylactic shock and conduct literature review of Korean cases.
