Abstract

Background: Beta-lactam antibiotics (BLA) are the most commonly prescribed antibiotics and are responsible for the majority of immediate hypersensitivity reactions to drugs in children. Cross-reactivity is important in hypersensitivity to BLAs because these drugs all share a common beta-lactam structure and some share similar side chains.
