Abstract

Objective: Cefazolin is a first-generation cephalosporin, particularly effective against gram positive agents such as staphylococci and streptococci. Despite this narrow spectrum, it is important in surgical prophylaxis. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the tolerability of cefazolin in patients with confirmed beta-lactam allergy.
