The molecular sites of the antigenic determinants of each group of antibiotics which constitute the beta-lactamic family (penicillin, cephalosporins, carbapenems, monobactams, beta-lactamase inhibitors) are examined in this article. Allergy to beta-lactams can determine rections of different types, according to the well-known Gell and Coombs's classification: in the last decade the relative incidence of the delayed reactions to beta-lactams prevails on that of the immediate reactions.
