Hospitalizations in Children with a Penicillin Allergy Label: An Assessment of Healthcare Impact.

08:00 EDT 22nd May 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Hospitalizations in Children with a Penicillin Allergy Label: An Assessment of Healthcare Impact."

Beta-lactam allergy is overdiagnosed. Diagnosis of penicillin allergy has been associated with a greater use of hospital resources and an increased risk of antibiotic-resistant infections, although this issue remains poorly studied in children. We aimed to compare patient characteristics and use of hospital resources in hospitalized children with and without a record of penicillin allergy.
