Introduction:

Prophylaxis is imperative for Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP), an important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Despite the availability of well-known prophylaxis guidelines and highly active antiretroviral treatment (HAART), PCP remains a leading opportunistic infection and an AIDS-defining diagnosis.1 Several antimicrobial agents are effective as prophylaxis against this organism, and prescribing differences are largely influenced by reports of allergies.
