A 35 year old multipara woman was admitted for emergency repeat cesarian section. She had first cesarian section under general anesthesia 3 years ago, and appendectomy under spinal anesthesia 2 years ago. But no uneventful problem developed in two cases of anesthesia. After induction of general anesthesia with propofol and succinylcholine, the patient showed irritability and severe cough, and immediate anaphylactic reaction developed with cardiovascular collapse, bronchospasm, and erythematous skin eruption. We resuscitated the patient with epinephrine and methylprednisolone but cesarian section was performed without delay. Four minutes after the induction of anesthesia female baby was delivered and the patient was recovered without any complication.
