Allergy to glucocorticosteroids is a rare event, always surprising for anti-allergic drugs. The clinical presentation is that of anaphylaxis. The drug allergy evaluation, comprising skin tests and possibly a provocation test, allows the demonstration of the role of the drug or one of its additives and to look for cross-reactivities and safe alternatives. This paper reviews the few case reports published so far.
