Celery is a herbaceous edible biennial plant in the family Apiaceae. It is native to the coasts of western and northern Europe, and of the Middle East. It was used by the ancient Greeks and Romans as a flavouring. The ancient Chinese used it as a medicine. Celery can cause oral symptoms (aphthae, stomatitis, swelling of the lips or tongue, pharyngitis, hoarseness and laryngeal oedema) and can often also induce acute generalised symptoms, such as severe laryngeal oedema, bronchial asthma, urticaria or allergic shock. Oral allergy syndrome has been documented (35,107), and the symptoms have been reported to be more marked in severity compared to reactions to other vegetables.
