Streptokinase used as a thrombolytic agent may produce immunologic drug reactions. We report a second case of IgE-mediated anaphylaxis and a late reaction to streptokinase. This late reaction was consistent with an IgG-mediated antigen-antibody disease with transient renal involvement, fever, and cutaneous lesions. The second case responded to prednisone therapy.
