Abstract

One of the most used cephalosporin in clinical practice is ceftriaxone. Anaphylaxis due to theadministration of ceftriaxone is considered a rare event. Here, we report a case of fatalanaphylactic shock after the administration of ceftriaxone in a child who had tolerated the drug inpast exposures. The allergic pathogenesis is sustained by the clinical data (short time betweenthe inoculation of the drug and the onset of the symptoms; past exposure to the same moleculeand probable sensitization) and the postmortem examination findings (polivisceral congestion andintense eosinophilia found in the histological examination).
