Abstract

Reactions 1704, p120 - 2 Jun 2018 Allergy: case report A 69-year-old man developed allergy during treatment with cotrimoxazole [sulfamethoxazole/ trimethoprim; route and dosage not stated]. The man had a history of benign prostatic hyperplasia, anaemia and hypertension. In August 2015, he started drinking a health drink called ’Imumio Miracle Water’ that was hydrogen enriched water with super lutein. After 2 3 weeks, he developed nodular skin lesions involving bilateral upper limbs and lost 3kg of weight. He discontinued the drink in September 2015. Examinations showed cervical, axillary and mediastinal lymphadenopathy, and he was referred to infectious disease service for suspected Kikuchi disease. Later, he was diagnosed with Mycobacterium mucogenicum infection. Subsequently, his treatment was started with cotrimoxazole along with linezolid and oral clarithromycin. However, he developed allergy to cotrimoxazole. Consequently, the man’s cotrimoxazole therapy was discontinued.
