Abstract

Propofol is a widely used general anaesthetic with growing usage outside anaesthesia. Despite its potential for abuse only five cases of propofol dependency have yet been reported. These comprise health care professionals with easy access to the drug. This is the first reported case of propofol dependency in a lay person. One should be aware of the abuse potential of propofol with regard to its growing use outside the context of general anaesthesia.
