To some extent, this situation can be understood since many insights into mechanisms of the allergic responses to a whole range of different drugs have occurred only in recent years. , cephalosporins, anesthetic agents, and chimeric monoclonal antibodies), let alone details of their allergenic properties, have yet to find their way into the general immunological and even some of the allergological literature. Ultimately, improvements in diagnosis and treatment should result from increased understanding of the mechanisms underlying immediate and delayed reactions and some nonimmune drug intolerances.

Clinical presentation is diverse and can vary from an erythematous rash mimicking a viral or bacterial exanthem to generalized symmetric eruptions of both isolated and confluent erythematous plaques.
