Severe generalised hypersensitivity reaction to topical neomycin after cataract surgery: a case report



Severe generalised hypersensitivity reaction to topical neomycin after cataract surgery: a case report



Journal of Medical Case Reports 2: 57



Systemic hypersensitivity reactions to topical ophthalmic treatment occur rarely, but when they do they can be severe as highlighted by this case. A post-operative cataract surgery patient developed a severe and generalised hypersensitivity reaction following topical treatment with Maxitrol (Dexamethasone and Neomycin) eye drops. The patient reported a previous allergic reaction to Neomycin. This case report emphasises the importance of a thorough drug and allergy history when patients are seen at pre-assessment or clerked in for surgery.
