Allergic vasculitis induced by Decapeptyl: confirmation by macrophage migration inhibition factor (MIF) test

Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol. 1993 Dec 30;52(3):217-8. doi: 10.1016/0028-2243(93)90075-n.


A case of allergic vasculitis of the skin following treatment with Decapeptyl (D-Trp6-LHRH) for in vitro fertilization is described. The possible role of an allergic mechanism in this reaction has been suggested by a positive macrophage migration inhibition factor (MIF) test toward the drug.
