Abstract:

β-Lactam antibiotics are among the safest and most effective antibiotics; however, many patients report allergies to these drugs despite few having clinically significant reactions, resulting in the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics that increase the risk for antimicrobial resistance and adverse events. This review provides recommendations for the evaluation of penicillin allergies to support antimicrobial stewardship.
