Kounis syndrome (KS) is defined as concurrent acute coronary syndrome and allergic or hypersensitivity reactions. Despite being increasingly reported, it is still an underdiagnosed entity. Several medications are already known to result in KS. Amoxicillin/clavulanic acid is a frequently used antibiotic, and its use has been linked with KS. The aim of the present report was to draw attention to rare clinical manifestation of KS following peroral amoxicillin/clavulanate use.

Introduction  Despite its in vitro efficacy, penicillin often fails to eradicate Group A β-hemolytic streptococci (GABHS) from patients with acute and relapsing pharyngo-tonsillitis (PT). Objective  This review of the literature details the causes of penicillin failure to eradicate GABHS PT and the therapeutic modalities to reduce and overcome antimicrobial failure. Data Synthesis  The causes of penicillin failure in eradicating GABHS PT include the presence of β lactamase producing bacteria (BLPB) that "protect" GABHS from any penicillin; the absence of bacteria that interfere with the growth of GABHS; co-aggregation between GABHS and Moraxella catarrhalis; and the poor penetration of penicillin into the tonsillar tissues and the tonsillo-pharyngeal cells, which allows intracellular GABHS and Staphylococcus aureus to survive...
