Infantile cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA) (J. Robert*)

Cow’s milk protein allergies (CMPA) affect 2 to 3% of infants. They appear when weaning or when giving the first bottles of milk. The allergy causes cutaneous, digestive or more rarely respiratory symptoms. Their onset depends on the underlying immunopathological mechanism, which makes a didactic classification and practical exploration of the allergic reactions possible.
