As the first step to evaluate the prevalence of bee
venom allergy in Korea , a basic survey was done in
668 elementary school children (341 boys and 327
girls) of a rural area in Chungcheong province.
History takings and skin tests showed the following
1. 448 chiloren (67.1%, 229 boys and 219 girls)
had previous history of bee sting, and 16 children (2.4
%, 9 boys and 7 girls) had experienced systemic
reactions after bee sting, which were regarded as
bee venom allergy.
2. In children with bee venom allergy, there was
no significant difference between ages or sexes and
no remarkable personal history of atopic diseases. 3. The symptoms of bee venom allergy were
generalized urticaria‘ angioedema and dizziness
probably due to vascular collapse. The sting site
were extremities, head and neck and abdomen etc.
in decreasing frequency. All the responsible bees
belonged to Vespoidea
4. Skin tests were perfermed in 9 children using
1% whole body extract of honeybee (Apis mellifera).
and positive reactions were showed in 6. But it
was not clear that this meant the cross'allergenecity
between bee species.
