Diagnostic issues in pediatric drug allergy

Published in Current Opinion in Allergy and Clinical Immunology. 2012, vol. 12, no. 4, p. 341-7
Abstract The serious health hazards posed by drug allergies have long been recognized and are commonly encountered in daily pediatric practice. Our general lack of knowledge of the pathomechanims greatly hampers our ability to correctly diagnose allergic drug reactions. The present review addresses the most recent literature regarding the diagnosis of allergy for the most commonly implicated drugs in children, that is, antibiotics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) and vaccines.
