Abstract

A 1-year-old girl with stage-IV neuroblastoma developed ondansetron hydrochloride anaphylaxis. Safe use of granisetron as an antiemetic after skin prick, oral, and intravenous challenge tests is presented. We present this case to emphasize that ondansetron hydrochloride may cause a serious anaphylactic reaction. In such a case, granisetron may be given to patients as an antiemetic after some provocative tests performed.
