SPT was 1+ in 1 patient and 3+++ in two other patients. Testing with possibly associated fruits (mulberry, banana, avocado, kiwi fruit) and latex revealed weakly positive reactions to banana, avocado and kiwi fruit in some cases. No patient reacted with latex. (Hemmer et al. 1998)
Skin prick test was positive for both fig and Ficus benjamina (FB) (Mock et al. 1998).
Skin prick tests were positive with dried fig, skin and pulp of green fig, leaf and latex of F. benjamina (prick-prick), and commercial extract of fig (prick); they were negative with kiwi, banana, hops, chestnut, Hevea brasiliensis latex, common environmental pneumoallergens (prick), and Ficus lyrata (prick-prick) (Gandolfo et al. 2001) .
Skin testing with fig fruit was positive in 5/6 patient (Focke et al. 2003)
Skin testing with fig fruit was positive in all patients (Caiaffa et al. 2003)
Prick to prick tests carried out with the skin fraction gave a stronger positive response than with the pulp fractions. These results were confirmed by pricking the extracts of both fig skin and pulp (Antico et al. 2003)
