why a rash appears in mononucleosis when ampicillin used ??? whats the pathophysiology behind this?


I do not know the exact pathophysiology of this but from what I have heard it most probably represents a "toxic" reaction and not a true allergic reaction. This is of course the most important distinction in the clinic! smiling face


The relationship is still not yet known
