Acting senior coroner Lydia Brown has ended the inquest into the death of 24-year-old Tania Kaur Khasriya who tragically died on 27th April 2022 following the withdrawal of palliative care. Tania had never recovered consciousness since suffering anaphylaxis in July 2018 when she was just 18 years old.
The inquest, held remotely at West London Coroner’s Court on 26th April 2023 concluded that ‘Tania had a catastrophic collapse at the wedding banquet of her brother in July 2018. On the balance of probabilities, this was in fact an anaphylactic response to a dish with nuts. It had not been possible to establish exactly what she ate, but due to the severity of her response, this was indeed an anaphylactic response to her exposure. This was clearly an unwanted and unexpected outcome to what was meant to have been the most joyous of occasions. It is a terrible loss to her family.’
Anaphylaxis UK would like to extend our deepest condolences to Tania’s family during this incredibly difficult time.
