- Some patients developed allergic reactions (eg, rash and hives) while taking CRYSVITA. Your doctor will monitor you for symptoms of an allergic reaction while you are taking CRYSVITA

- Administration of CRYSVITA may result in reactions at the injection site, such as hives, reddening of the skin, rash, swelling, bruising, pain, severe itching of the skin, and collection of blood outside of a blood vessel (ie, hematoma)
- If you are taking CRYSVITA for TIO, your doctor will have you stop your CRYSVITA treatment temporarily if you are undergoing treatment for your tumor (eg, surgical removal of the tumor or radiation therapy)
