    Abstract

    Tall T waves and pronounced prolongation of the QT interval developed 24 hours after an apparently complete recovery from an acute anaphylactic reaction to oral ampicillin in a previously healthy woman of 29. These electrocardiographic abnormalities gradually subsided over five days. The prolongation of the QT interval has not previously been reported after anaphylaxis.
