There have been few reports of manifestations such as vasculitis, nephrosis, neuritis, encephalitis, and serum sickness occuring in a temporal relation to insect stings. Symptoms usually start several days to several weeks after the sting and may last for a long time. Angioedema with eosinophilia induced by bee sting has not reported in medical literature. We report a case of eosinophilia with angioedema induced by bee venom in a 30-year-old woman whom presented with edema of extremities and peripheral blood eosinophilia. The patient had high titer of specific IgE to yellow jacket venom.
