Abstract

Hypersensitivity to zidovudine is an uncommon complication of antiretroviral therapy. Manifestations range from isolated fever to anaphylaxis. Fever and rash are the most common features. Diagnosis is made by rechallenge, although some patients have antibodies to zidovudine. Treatment is supportive, and symptoms resolve on withdrawal of the medication.
