BACKGROUND: Auriculotemporal syndrome (AS) is an uncommon disorder that may present with facial erythema with chewing food. METHODS: We report a patient referred to an allergist to rule out allergy as a reason for food-associated bilateral facial flushing. She was subsequently found to have bilateral AS. RESULTS: The symptoms of AS may overlap those associated with food allergy. There are only a few published cases of bilateral AS. CONCLUSIONS: Allergists should be aware of bilateral AS and the clinical spectrum of this disorder as AS patients may be referred to allergists to rule out food allergy.
