Caterpillars and moths (order Lepidoptera) are uncommonly recognized causes of adverse cutaneous reactions, such as localized stings, papular dermatitis, and urticarial wheals. These reactions are typically mild and self-limited; however, in South America, the sting of Lonomia caterpillars can cause a potentially fatal hemorrhagic diathesis related to massive fibrinolysis. In ...

Rhinitis is characterized by rhinorrhea, sneezing, nasal congestion, nasal itch and/or postnasal drip. Often the first step in arriving at a diagnosis is to exclude or diagnose sensitivity to inhalant allergens. Non-allergic rhinitis (NAR) comprises multiple distinct conditions that may even co-exist with allergic rhinitis (AR). They may differ in ...

BACKGROUND: The postmarketing safety evaluation of drugs relies on the spontaneous reporting of adverse reactions to authorities. Under-reporting is a known issue, with only 3% of all adverse reactions that occur actually being reported. Therefore, the postmarketing safety evaluation of medications is compromised. OBJECTIVE: This investigation aimed to identify determining ...
