Kounis syndrome (KS) is a complex of cardiovascular symptoms and signs following either allergy or hypersensitivity and anaphylactic or anaphylactoid insults. We report the case of 57-year-old man, with hypertension and history of allergy, referred for facial rash and palpitations appeared after consumption of canned tuna fish. Suddenly, the patient collapsed: electrocardiogram showed ST-elevation in inferior leads. The patient was transferred from the spoke emergency room for coronary angio, which did not show any sign of coronary atherosclerosis...

Kounis syndrome (KS), described by Kounis and Zavras in 1991, is the manifestation of an allergic reaction preceding and leading to an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). There are three variants of Kounis Syndrome. Here we describe a novel case report of a type 1 variant secondary to Ziprasidone.

Kounis syndrome is an acute coronary syndrome in the context of a hypersensitivity reaction. The main pathophysiological mechanism appears to be coronary vasospasm. We report the case of a patient with a history of allergy to quinolones, who was given ciprofloxacin before an elective surgical procedure and during drug administration developed symptoms and electrocardiographic changes suggestive of ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome. The drug was suspended and coronary angiography excluded epicardial coronary disease...

Kounis syndrome (KS) is a life-threatening medical condition that causes severes allergic reaction and acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We describe the case of 56-year-old woman who developed ACS following an anaphylactic reaction to amoxicillin/clavulanic acid. Immediately after the administration of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, she presented a chest pain, cutaneous allergic, hypotension, and ST depression on the electrocardiogram. After the necessary diagnostic test, the final diagnosis was variant I of KS.

Anaphylactic reactions are often induced by drugs, and the most frequent ones are penicillin derivates. The concurrence of acute coronary syndrome with hypersensitivity and anaphylactic or anaphylactoid reactions constitutes the Kounis syndrome. We report a case of a coronary stent thrombosis with a fatal outcome complicating an anaphylactic shock induced by amoxicillin-clavulanic acid association. A 58-year-old woman with a history of triple coronary stenting was treated by amoxicillin/clavulanic acid association for pharyngitis...

BACKGROUND: Kounis syndrome (KS) is characterized by concurrent presence of anaphylactic and cardiac components. Available evidence suggests that antibiotics are frequently associated to KS. We therefore analyzed KS cases associated with antibiotics use from the two largest pharmacovigilance databases. METHODS: Two pharmacovigilance databases, EudraVigilance and VigiLyze, were searched for cases reporting the adverse reaction "Kounis Syndrome" with antibiotics as suspected active substance...

BACKGROUND: Approximately 1% of emergency department (ED) visits are due to anaphylaxis. Symptoms can include skin rash, facial and laryngeal edema, dyspnea, vomiting, hypotension, and shock. A transient loss of consciousness can also be a manifestation of anaphylaxis. A variety of electrocardiographic changes due to anaphylaxis have been described for Kounis syndrome, also known as allergic angina. CASE REPORT: Here we describe the case of a male patient presenting at an ED with syncope, anaphylactic shock, and ST-segment elevation on electrocardiogram (ECG)...

The role and importance of thienopyridines such as ticlopidine, clopidogrel, and prasugrel is well-established for several indications, ranging from prevention of acute coronary syndromes to percutaneous coronary interventions, where the dual antiplatelet therapy represents the gold standard to avoid denovo coronary stenosis. However, there is a significant cohort of patients with coronary artery disease who may manifest hypersensitivity reactions to thienopyridines. The examination of the various case reports from medical literature leads to identify mainly four clinical patterns of hypersensitivity to thienopyridines which involves more frequently cutaneous, hematologic, and articular tissues, therefore the kind and predominance of clinical symptoms may determine a different clinical approach to overcome or neutralize thienopyridines hypersensitivity...

Kounis syndrome (KS) is a rarely diagnosed condition which should always be kept in mind when an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) happens in the context of anaphylactic reactions. We report a case of a 31-year old female; 2 hours after the ingestion of the mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus); she experienced nausea, stomachache, vomiting, dyspnea and chest pain. Electrocardiogram (ECG) showed an ST segment elevation in D1, AVL, precordial leads V1-V4. The blood analysis revealed high levels of CK-MB fraction and troponin T values...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Scombroid poisoning is a frequent cause of admission in emergency department. In everyday clinical practice, it can be difficult to discriminate between scombroid syndrome and fish allergy. The aim of this review is to provide the clinician some instruments to make a correct differential diagnosis. RECENT FINDINGS: In the last few years, a better characterization of scombroid syndrome occurred, in particular regarding its possible severe presentations...
