Anaphylaxis to suxamethonium--a case report

Anaesthesia and Intensive Care
M D MatthewsM Pabari

Abstract

A case history is presented of a woman who developed very severe bronchospasm, hypotension, "lobster-red" erythema and later angio edema of the head and neck after induction of anaesthesia for caesarean section. Intradermal testing at a later date, showed immediate-type sensitivity to suxamethonium. Reference is made to the other few reactions to suxamethonium reported in the world literature.
