Abstract

Patient-reported antibiotic allergies (so-called antibiotic allergy labels [AALs]) are associated with suboptimal prescribing and inferior clinical outcomes, especially in the immunocompromised (1, 2). The prevalence, type, and impact of AALs in liver transplant recipients (LTRs) remain ill defined. We report on AALs and their impact on a cohort of Australian LTRs.
