We report a case of a 34-year-old woman who received cefuroxime, a second-generation cephalosporin, as treatment for mastitis. She subsequently developed a serum sickness-like reaction (SSLR) with a generalized pruritic rash, joint pains, and fever. She improved upon treatment with systemic steroids. SSLR is well-described to cefaclor, a second-generation cephalosporin. However, there is a paucity of reports of SSLR to other cephalosporins such as this case.
