A similar phenomenon was observed in a small group of children in the MMAS [12]. CMA in infancy usually resolves around 12–24 months of age [18]. Høst and Halken [4] demonstrated the development of tolerance to cow’s milk in 56% of infants with CMA at 1 year, 77% at 2 years, and 87% at 3 years. However, CMA may persist to adult life. Kokkonen et al. [28, 29] recently described a group of school-aged children with CMA in infancy in whom noncharacteristic gastrointestinal symptoms persisted to 10 years of age, suggestive of residual cow’s milk-sensitive enteropathy.

That study inferred that antigen-specific Th2 cells mediate the skin manifestations of AD in children with CMA [33]. 39 Clinical Profile of Food Allergy in Infancy Multiple Food Protein Intolerance of Infancy Over a 10-year period, the Melbourne Food Allergy Study identified 60 infants allergic to cow’s milk, soy and extensively hydrolyzed formula, as well as to several other major food allergens, including egg, wheat, peanut and fish.
