Positive HLA-B*5701 genotype has recently been identified as the main genetic risk factor for flucloxacillin drug-induced liver injury (DILI). Testing for HLA-B*5701 is routine in many HIV clinics to identify those at risk of hypersensitivity reaction (HSR) to abacavir. Considering the high prevalence of soft-tissue infections in HIV patients, we conducted a retrospective study to investigate whether flucloxacillin use was associated with adverse events in HIV patients known to be HLA-B*5701 positive.
