Anaphylactic reactions occurring during anaesthesia remain a major cause of concern for anaesthesiologists. Serious and occasionally fatal anaphylactic reaction may occur when a patient is exposed to a drug for the first time. On time prompt recognition and treatment of the acute event by the attending anaesthesiologist and subsequent determination of the responsible agents with strict avoidance of subsequent administration of all incriminated cross reacting compounds is very important. However, correct identification of the causative compound immediately is not always straightforward. In this case report, we summarized the alarming rare causes of anaphylaxis during anaesthesia and the diagnostic approach of this rare but potentially life-threatening complication and management.
