Abstract

Drug hypersensitivity reactions are a daily worry for clinicians. The tools allowing a definitive diagnosis are few and poorly validated. They include a thorough clinical history, standardized skin tests, reliable biological test, and sometimes drug provocation tests. These tools are currently being evaluated by the European Network of Drug Allergy, under the aegis of the EAACI drug hpersensitivity group of interest.
