Abstract: 
Acute allergic reactions are important causes of emergency department (ED) admission, imposing a significant clinical and organizational burden. Since the season of birth is linked with early exposure to allergens, this study was aimed to establish whether an association exists between season of birth and incidence and severity of acute allergic reactions in the ED.
