Teicoplanin-Induced Anaphylactic Reaction in Children: a Case Report

Godwin Oligbu, Leila Ahmed


Teicoplanin is now increasingly used as a first-line prophylactic therapy for major surgical procedures, treatment of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections, and for those with reported penicillin allergy. Teicoplanin is rarely associated with anaphylaxis and there is limited information on the prevalence of teicoplanin- induced perioperative anaphylaxis. Here, we describe a case of a 12-year-old child with teicoplanin anaphylaxis peri-operatively.
