Diclofenac-induced hypersensitivity reaction in a patient suffering from rheumatoid arthritis: A case report

Hypersensitivity reactions against nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like diclofenac (DF) can manifest as Type-I-like allergic reactions including systemic anaphylaxis. Angioedema is a transient subcutaneous or submucosal swelling that is non-pitting when pressure is applied. This case report was collected in the outpatient department of the tertiary care hospital in Punjab. This included a female patient who was having a hypersensitivity reaction on administering drug DF. The patient was diagnosed with drug-induced angioedema of the arm and was asked to discontinue the drug. Complete remission was seen after 1 week of discontinuing the medication.
