Macrolides antibiotics synthesized by Streptomyces strains are prescribed widely and seldom produce hypersensitivity reactions, even when administered topically. Consequently, they are considered very safe drugs. We report the case of a 32‐year‐old woman who developed anaphylactic shock after ingesting erythromycin, which she had taken twice before. The previous exposure to erythromycin, clinical findings, and a positive skin intradermal test with erythromycin (10 mg/mL) support the postulate that anaphylaxis was induced by erythromycin.
