We examined a total of 104 participants, ranging in age from 14 to 83 years, with histories of immediate reactions to penicillins. We performed the allergy testing with intervals ranging from 1 to 360 months (median, 6 months) after the most recent reaction (Table 2). No case had any exclusion criterion. These patients had experienced a total of 138 reactive episodes to penicillins. Table 2 shows the responsible penicillins and clinical manifestations.
