I just finished reading the following article:
In the first case noted the child who was diagnosed with food protein induced entercolitis syndrome (FPIES) had a vegetarian mother. Could there be a correlation between FPIES and the mother's vegetarianism?
This is the first time I've ever heard of this allergy. Does anyone have any knowledge about FPIES that could offer some information about this allergy?
This is a broad question. All comments and information are welcome.

Here is my take on it. I am not a doctor, so take it for what it's worth.
Both mothers probably had a very bad gut flora. One from being a vegetarian and another one from ... I don't know... SAD diet? Whatever.
Their mothers' insufficient flora made their children's guts lack beneficial bacteria, hence all the allergies. Notice how one kid could not drink his mother's milk? Guess what? Gut bacteria did not have a chance.
Now for the treatment. First, they need to do a Metametrix stool analysis. Then years on sauerkraut juice added to.... peanut butter. Notice how everything he can eat has some sugar or carbs in it - lactose, starch, fructose. If worse comes to worst, he might need a fecal transplant.
Just putting my two cents in.

There is a blog about a woman who "cured" (and/or drastically reduced the severity of) FPIES with a very restrictive GAPS diet.

There are links in that article you could follow...
But it's hard to say anything definite based on a mass-media article. I suspect the poor kid was dealt a lousy hand in the genetic lottery. There is no mention of a mechanism for this illness, so it's really hard to say what's going on there. Clearly it's not just reaction to (animal) protein as he can drink milk...
I don't think this has anything to do with the vegetarianism of his mother.
