ABSTRACT

Antibiotic allergy is one of the most common adverse drug hypersensitivity reactions, posing a challenge to clinicians in treating patients. In this study a 20 year old patient, to be operated upon for varicose veins had adverse drug reaction to b-lactams and cephalosporins. The patient was subjected to oral challenge test for quinolone (levofloxacin) under intensive care unit settings. The patient did not show any reaction to the drug and was operated upon under the cover of levofloxcin. The post operative period was uneventful. It is for the first time that oral challenge test has been carried out in any tertiary care hospital in Kashmir valley.

Keywords: Cephalosporins, levofloxacin.
