J PuyanaJ Fraj

Abstract

A 19 year-old youth was taking oral minocycline and after 8 days he presented all four cardinal symptoms of serum sickness (urticaria, fever, lymphadenopathy and joint symptoms). C3, C4 and CH50 evolution imitate experimental serum sickness complement evolution. We exclude other causes of this syndrome. Although other hypersensitivity reactions have occurred with minocycline usage, to our knowledge serum sickness-like syndrome has not been previously reported with this drug.
