Aplastic anaemia - gold compounds. Hepatitis and cholestatic jaundice - carbimazole and chlorpromazine. Collagen disease-like lupus erythematosus - hydralazine and procainamide.

These deposit in vascular endothelium, activate complement and produce a vasculitis resembling serum sickness. This is a mechanism in sulphonamide and penicillin allergies. Type TV: Delayedlcell mediated Both the allergen and the antibody are tissue bound.
