Isosulfan blue dye can be used to mark the sentinel lymph node during various surgeries. The dye was known to have minimal side effects, but recently a few cases of an anaphylactic reaction were reported in melanoma and breast surgery. We experienced an anaphylactic reaction during peritumoral injection of this dye in a patient with cervical cancer. Immediately after dye injection, the patient showed an anaphylactic reaction with cardiovascular collapse and oxygen desaturation. We resuscitated the patient and she recovered without complications.
Key Words: Anaphylaxis; cervical cancer; isosulfan blue; sentinel lymph node
