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.

We report the case of a patient who, ∼3 weeks after multiple bee stings, developed a prolonged heart block, syncope and cardiac arrest. This required a temporary pacemaker to be implanted, which was later replaced with a permanent pacemaker. An ECG taken following surgery for a fractured humerus 6 years earlier was reportedly normal. The patient had been a rubber tapper who walked ∼1.5 km/day, but after the bee attack he was no longer able to walk or get up from the bed without experiencing syncope...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ZCL) makes it the most widespread parasitic disease in Tunisia and the Arab world. Yet, few studies have addressed its psychological and psychosocial effects. The purpose of this study was to examine the psychosocial impact of ZCL scars among Tunisian women. METHODS: We conducted an exploratory study, we administered Revised Illness Perception Questionnaire (IPQ-R), World Health Organization Quality Of Life-26 (WHOQOL-26) and Psoriasis Life Stress Inventory (PLSI) to a group of girls and women with ZCL scar in the region of Sidi Bouzid...

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...

Combined liver and kidney transplantation is a highly demanding and challenging procedure for anesthesiologists due to the lengthy and complicated nature of the procedure, the critical patient condition and the need to balance the intravascular volume to maintain the venous outflow of the hepatic allograft and also the diuresis of the renal allograft. Intravascular volume management and coagulation control, seem to be the most important issues during combined liver and kidney transplantation. There is sparsity of data in the literature concerning the anesthetic and fluid management in CLKT...
