Levofloxacin‐induced symmetric drug‐related intertriginous and flexural exanthema

Urushiol-induced airborne and systemic pustular dermatitis from Japanese lacquer has been linked to exanthematous pustulosis induced by ingestion of lacquer chicken.

Probable Levofloxacin-Induced Thrombocytopenia in a Patient Previously on Ciprofloxacin: A Case Report and Literature Review

A case of suspected levofloxacin-induced thrombocytopenia, a rare side effect of a ubiquitous antibiotic, in a patient without similar effect to ciprofloxacins is presented.

Usefulness of In Vivo and In Vitro Diagnostic Tests in the Diagnosis of Hypersensitivity Reactions to Quinolones and in the Evaluation of Cross-Reactivity: A Comprehensive Study Including the Latest Quinolone Gemifloxacin

STs, BAT, and LTT are not supportive in the diagnosis of a hypersensitivity reaction to quinolone as well as in the prediction of cross-reactivity.



Immediate Hypersensitivity to Moxifloxacin with Tolerance to Ciprofloxacin: Report of Three Cases and Review of the Literature

Patients who develop immediate hypersensitivity reactions to moxifloxacin may receive ciprofloxac in therapy in an appropriately monitored setting if they have previously tolerated full treatment courses of cipROfloxACin.

Immediate hypersensitivity to quinolones: moxifloxacin cross-reactivity.

The skin test with different quinolones seems to be sensitive at showing group hypersensitivity, but not at predicting specific tolerance of each drug, so it is currently recommend to avoid the group.

Detection of specific IgE to quinolones.

Drug provocation testing in the diagnosis of drug hypersensitivity reactions: general considerations

A drug provocation test (DPT) is the controlled administration of a drug in order to diagnose drug hypersensitivity reactions. DPTs are performed under medical surveillance, whether this drug is an

IgE-Mediated Allergy to Pyrazolones, Quinolones and Other Non- Β -Lactam Antibiotics

IgE-mediated allergic reactions to pyrazolones, quinolones and other non- Β -lactam antibiotics are reviewed based on the literature and personal data. Evidence of immediatetype hypersensitivity co

In vitro evaluation of IgE‐mediated hypersensitivity reactions to quinolones

In vitro evaluation of IgE‐mediated hypersensitivity reactions to quinolones confirms the importance of knowing the carrier and removal status of canine coronavirus, as a source of infection for other animals.
