Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Infrequently reported, serious allergic reactions to topical antimicrobial agents used in the treatment of burn injuries are a potential source of confusion. To avoid misdirected therapy, an understanding of the manifestations of such reactions is important. Two recent cases of serious allergic reactions, one to silver sulphadiazine, one to mafenide acetate, are presented and the literature is reviewed.
