Title:
Patch-Testing for the Management of Hypersensitivity Reactions to Second-Line Anti-Tuberculosis Drugs: A Case Report

BMC Research Notes
Abstract:
The second-line anti-tuberculosis drugs used in the treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis often cause adverse events, especially in patients co-infected with the human immunodeficiency virus. Severe hypersensitivity reactions due to these drugs are rare and there is little published experience to guide their management.
