What is a breakthrough reaction?

A breakthrough reaction is a repeat contrast reaction that occurs in a premedicated patient. Breakthrough reactions are most often similar to the index reaction in terms of severity and clinical presentation. Presence of severe allergies to any other substance, more than four allergies, any drug allergy, and chronic use of oral corticosteroids are associated with a higher risk of a moderate or severe breakthrough reaction.
