There are many disease entities which are associated with hemoglobinuria but the report of which is very rare during anesthesia except in the case of incompatible transfusion. The authors experienced a case of severe hemoglobinuria during general anesthesia with halothane, nitroud oxide, and thiopental sodium. The patient had no transfusion perioparatively, and no history of hemoltic problems except for prolonged oozing after ethrane anesthesia for tympanoplasty five monthes ago previously. The hemogiobinuria disappeared after two days of corticosteroid therapy, but afterwards the patient suffered from mild hepatitis which seemed to be due to repeated halothane anesthesia.
