Is there a specific association between presence of a shellfish allergy and an increased allergy to iodinated contrast material?

It is an incorrectly held perception in clinical practice that shellfish allergy specially predisposes patients to contrast reaction. An allergy to shellfish does not increase the risk for an adverse reaction to iodinated contrast material any more than do other allergies.
