Anaphylactic reaction to meloxicam has never been reported to date. We report 2 cases of meloxicam-induced anaphylactic reaction with no sensitivity to another selective cyclooxygenase 2 inhibitor. A thorough drug allergy work-up should be done before other cyclooxygenase inhibitors are prescribed. © 2006 Esmon Publicidad.
