    Article - En anglais

    Based on notifications to the Danish Committee on Adverse Drug Reactions and to the Central Death Register, 30 cases of fatal drug-induced anaphylactic shock were identified during the period 1968-1990.

    The most frequent causes were contrast media for X-ray examinations, antibiotics, and extracts of allergens.

    Nine cases occurred outside hospital ; they were mainly caused by the use of allergen extracts of moulds for desensitization in general practice.

    Fatal drug-induced anaphylactic shock is rare, estimated in the present study at 0.3 case per million inhabitants per year.
