Hypersensitivity has been observed in regard to several drugs used to manage HIVand associated infections, with the antiretrovirals nevirapine and abacavir being the best characterized of the syndromes. These events represent a high cost both to the patient and the healthcare system, and those labelled as being hypersensitive to one or both drugs may find their treatment options significantly reduced.
