It is not uncommon for otolaryngologists to encounter laryngeal edema due to infection in routine practice. However, we rarely encounter laryngeal edema caused by allergic reactions to orally ingested food.We herein report two cases of oral allergy syndrome after consumption of manuka honey candy. Both cases developed laryngeal edema and subsequent steroid administration led to the prompt improvement of symptoms. A basophil activation test for manuka honey candy was negative in both cases.
