Anaphylactic response to
topical fluorescein 2% eye drops: a case report
The intravenous use of fluorescein
10% during retinal angiography can cause severe systemic reactions including,
on rare occasions, anaphylaxis. Fluorescein 2% eye drops are used extensively
for clinical examination and diagnosis, but to the best of our knowledge, they
have only been reported as being responsible for a systemic anaphylactic
response on two previous occasions.
We report the case of a
51-year-old woman who developed an anaphylactic reaction when she was
administered fluorescein sodium 2% eye drops after cataract surgery. This was
the second time she had been exposed to fluorescein. She had brittle asthma and
a history of anaphylaxis following exposure to a variety of drug and food allergens.
She was successfully resuscitated and recovered completely over a period of two
Fluorescein 2% drops are
universally used in general practice, ophthalmology, optometry, and casualty
departments. Our case report reveals the potential for this benign eye drop to
cause a life-threatening systemic reaction and emphasises the importance of
considering this consequence when administering topical fluorescein 2% to a
patient with a history of anaphylaxis to other allergens.
