Urgent retrieval of samples for these investigations before they are discarded is vital to ascertain the cause of death. 6 Fatal Anaphylaxis Around the World Eighty-nine deaths in Florida 1996–2005 were identified as due to anaphylaxis by diagnostic codes on the death certificate; 41 had autopsies and the autopsy reports were available for 34.

The reaction trigger was identified in 44 deaths: of these, 64% were iatrogenic, 16% triggered by food allergy, and 20% by stings.
