BACKGROUND Immediate-type hypersensitivity reactions to quinolones are rare. Some reports describe the presence of cross-reactivity among different members of the group, although no predictive pattern has been established. No previous studies confirm or rule out cross-reactivity between levofloxacin and other quinolones.Therefore, a joint study was designed between 2 allergy departments to assess cross-reactivity between levofloxacin and other quinolones. MATERIAL AND METHODS We studied 12… CONTINUE READING
