A Case of Severe Anaphylaxis to Polyhexanide: Cross-Reactivity between Biguanide Antiseptics.

Int Arch Allergy Immunol 2017 29;173(4):233-236. Epub 2017 Aug 29.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Münster, Münster, Germany.

We present the case of a 77-year-old female patient who suffered from severe anaphylaxis during wound care. Allergologic evaluation yielded specific IgE antibodies to chlorhexidine, but anaphylaxis to chlorhexidine was not congruent with the patient history and dermal provocation tests. However, skin prick tests provided evidence for a sensitization to polyhexanide that was further supported by the detection of specific IgE antibodies to polyhexanide, the results of basophil activation tests and IgE inhibition analysis.
