In brief: Serum sickness

Classic serum sickness is caused by administration of a protein antigen from a non-human species.
There have been some case reports implicating the drugs Rituximab and Infliximab (used to treat chron's disease and rheumatoid arthritis). Rarely, repeated blood transfusions, insect stings, and mosquito bites can cause serum sickness-type reactions.
