> Skin window test was performed in nineteen eases of drug allergy and nine non-allergic controls with the causative drugs as proved by the provocation test. Eleven (57 9 %) out of nineteen drug allergy cases showed a significant increase in eosinophils at drug test sites as compared with the control sites, while none of the non-allergic individuals showed such an increase. Skin window test was found useful to prove diagnosis of drug allergy in 57.9% cases studied. Performing of skin window cell counts beyond 24 h may be useful in detecting cases of drug allergy showing negative skin window teats upto 24 h.
