Abstract

Triazole antifungal drugs may rarely cause serious allergic reactions including angioedema. No standardized tests are available to predict cross-reactivity within the azole class and little guiding information exists on whether to change therapy within the class or to another class after a serious allergic reaction. Herein we report the first successful use, to our knowledge, of graded isavuconazole introduction for treatment of aspergillosis in a liver transplant recipient with severe voriconazole allergy.
