Suramin, a drug used to treat parasitic diseases, is currently being investigated as a treatment for metastatic prostate cancer. A 73–year‐old man had an anaphylactoid reaction following the first dose of suramin. It was treated successfully with epinephrine, diphenhydramine, and hydrocortisone. Investigators should be aware of the possibility of such a reaction with parenteral administration of this drug. 1993 Pharmacotherapy Publications Inc.
