Abstract

A 35-year-old multipara woman underwent intrauterine pressure catheter placement during labor. Immediately afterwards, she had severe dyspnea develop, became unresponsive, and had a prolonged fetal bradycardia. During emergency cesarean section, she required cardiopulmonary resuscitation repetitively. She then had disseminated intravascular coagulopathy develop and underwent hysterectomy. Anaphylactic reaction may be associated with intrauterine pressure catheter placement.
