Abstract

DRESS syndrome (drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms), previously named "drug hypersensitivity syndrome", is a severe adverse drug reaction characterized by skin rash, fever lymph node enlargement and internal organ involvement. We report on a 7-year old girl who developed DRESS syndrome caused by penicillin V treatment.
