    The allergic march can often result in children with one food allergy phenotype developing other allergic manifestations as they grow older. In this grand round, we describe the case of a child with a diagnosis of eosinophilic esophagitis at an early age, who subsequently developed IgE-mediated allergy to milk and egg. Because of the onset of allergic rhinitis, an additional complication of the teenage years was the development of pollen food syndrome, which further affected the already complex dietary management. These multiple allergies had a consequent effect on nutritional status and provoked considerable psychosocial issues, which greatly affected the patient's relationship with food. This case illustrates that for complex patients, a cohesive approach and shared decision-making are essential for diagnosis and management. Working with the patient and also the whole family, and considering how best to support them, necessitates a flexible approach. Regular follow-up is important to address changing psychosocial and dietary needs and monitor the resolution of allergies and response to pharmacotherapy. Complex patients need the input of a comprehensive multidisciplinary team, with good access to dietetic and psychological support, to optimize quality of life for these individuals and their families.
