Girl with peanut allergy dies after boyfriend's kiss

A 15-year-old girl in Quebec's Saguenay region is believed to have died as a result of an &to=http://english.pravda.ru/science/19/94/377/11597_.html' target=_blank>allergic reaction to her boyfriend's kiss. An autopsy will be performed on the body of the teen, who was allergic to peanuts.

Officials said she did not consume the nuts, but they believe she had a reaction to kissing her boyfriend, who had eaten peanut butter.

The apparently fatal kiss was last Sunday in Jonquiиre, Que. Although an adrenalin shot was administered almost immediately, the teen did not recover, the Montreal newspaper La Presse reports.

The girl was rushed to hospital, where she died after suffering respiratory failure. Her death was confirmed Wednesday, reports CBC Montreal.

Dr. Nina Verreault, an allergist at the Chicoutimi Hospital in Saguenay, did not want to comment on the case but said peanut allergies are seldom fatal.
