Aspirin allergy labeling after desensitization: education, communication, and patient safety

Even after aspirin desensitization, it’s important that patients with AERD continue to have aspirin listed as an allergy, because they are at risk for reactions if aspirin is stopped, or they are given higher doses. This paper describes patients who had their aspirin allergy label removed from their medical chart without their knowledge after an aspirin desensitization. AERD patients and allergists should be aware of this risk, and work to communicate with medical teams to ensure aspirin allergies are appropriately labeled and disclosed.
